  1. you have used a wrong forum earlier, Its a case of public nuisance, you may file a case before a civil court without permission of Advocate general or you may file a complaint with Enoronmentant Authority.

    The supreme court has held as under:

    In the case of Islamuddin and others v. Ghulam Muhammad (PLD 2004 SC 633), it has been held as follows:-
    “… there is no bar upon an individual to institute a suit for a right existing in his favour in respect of the cases pertaining to public nuisance without obtaining the consent of the Advocate-General, therefore, non-following the procedure under Order I, Rule 8, C.P.C. would not be fatal in given circumstances of the case.
