10 booked for illegal mining in Ferozepur

Ferozepur, June 22
Deputy Commissioner S Karuna Raju, accompanied by Hardial Singh Mann, SSP, and officials of the Industry Department, raided various places where mining was being carried on in a clandestine fashion.
Raju said there were specific instructions from the Chief Minister to check illegal mining of minerals and sand. Hence, 10 persons had been booked following raids at various sites.
The DC said there were 57 authorised sand mines in the district. He instructed officials to provide basic facilities like shelter and drinking water to labourers working at places where mining was permitted.
He asked locals to pay contractors only at the rates approved by the government. “Fleecing will not be tolerated,” he warned.
