SC bans tourism near Jarawa region in Andamans

Jul 02, 2012 11:03 AM IST India India

New Delhi: In a relief to the protected Jarawa tribes of Andaman Islands, the Supreme Court on Monday stopped all tourism-related activities close to the reserve areas in the island.

Last month, the Cabinet had approved the promulgation of a law that brings into effect a buffer zone in the 5-km radius around the Jarawa tribal settlements.

In January, two British newspapers had released a controversial video film showing scantily-clad Jarawa tribal women dancing for tourists in return for food and money.
