Patna: Bihar government has ordered an
inquiry into the alleged illegal mining in Nawada district,
Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said today.
The inquiry was ordered after ruling JD(U) MLA Pradeep
Kumar alleged that volumes of mica worth crores of rupees were
illegally brought out from the Bhankhap mines by local
musclemen in connivance with state mines department officials.
"Economic offences wing will conduct the inquiry and
submit report soon," Kumar said.
