The Supreme Court on Wednesday warned IIT-Bombay of contempt proceedings if it walked out of a government project to install a smog tower in the national capital to control pollution. In a sharp rebuke the court said that it will punish the institution for backing out of the project six months after signing MoU with the pollution board. "I can't tolerate this nonsense. We will punish IIT Bombay and other authorities for delaying court orders. How can they back out after six months? How can they back out from a government project?," an angry court said. IIT Bombay had written an email on July 14 in which the institution said it would not be able to accept conditions laid down in the project MoU.
