The Tirupur Rural Police seized a lorry transporting fabric dyeing equipment that was illegally taken away from a sealed dyeing unit at Kallakattupudur late on Tuesday evening.

The driver managed to give the slip to the police.

Police sources said the dyeing unit was sealed by the district administration after Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board officials found that it was discharging untreated effluents into the open.
