HC notice on illegal quarrying

Dehradun, April 20 - The Nainital High Court has issued a notice to the state and sought a reply within three weeks regarding illegal quarrying in Uttarakhand. The court directive came in the wake of a PIL filed by the Jan Sangharsh Morcha.
Raghunath Singh Negi, president of the Jan Sangharsh Morcha and former chairman of the Garhwal Mandal Vikas Nigam, has been alleging that the state government has allotted land for quarrying where there is a little possibility of getting minerals and, in another way, has been facilitating illegal collection of minerals from rivers. Negi sought a CBI probe saying the administration had only impounded some trucks in the name of action against the quarrying mafia.
