Contamination in the atmosphere caused by the discharge, accidental or deliberates of a wide range of toxic substances. Often the amount of the released substance is relatively high in a certain locality such as large cities as Dhaka, so the harmful effects are more noticeable. The garbage usually fell off while trucks & vans drove around the city, during the busy hours of the morning, haphazardly and foul odor was spread increasing the likelihood of air-borne diseases amongst school children & office workers. The judgment as Stated by the Court directed the Dhaka City Corporation to properly transport the garbage in covered trucks or vans, whatever may be used, within the designated time in order to protect the health of its citizens and keeping the city clean.
