Land acquired by Lucky Cement, Pakistan, in a Buchal Kalan, Kallar Kahar, Punjab for a new cement factory has been declared legal, according to a report in The Express Tribune.

Lahore High Court had stopped the Punjab government from acquiring the land in Buchal Kalan village for the cement factory after villagers mounted a legal challenge against the move.

The petitioners has argued that two cement factories were already operating near their village and that a third could result in environmental damage and prove a health hazard.
