The Supreme Court on Thursday asked the Union government to explain whether an agreement with Russia to waive the civil liability in case of an accident at the Kudankulam nuclear power plant would have an impact on the exchequer.

“Any agreement in violation of statute or law is void,” said a Bench of Justices K.S. Radhakrishnan and Dipak Misra hearing a batch of petitions filed by anti-nuclear activists for a stay on the commissioning of the plant.
