Mining mafia obstructs SP`s vehicle during raid
Shimla: Close on the heels of an attack on a SDM by mining mafia in Solan, a senior police officer in the district was allegedly obstructed from performing his duty while conducting a raid to check the illegal activity.
Two tractor-trailers loaded with sand blocked the way of Superintendent of Police S Arul last night while he was in his official car to check illegal sand and gravel mining from riverbeds in Baddi area of Solan.
"While I was on way to check mining, two tractors, coming from the other side, did not give way to my vehicle," the SP said.
Arul, acting on a tip-off, had reached the spot to check mining in Manpura `khad` in Baddi area, police sources said.
Earlier this month, alleged mining mafia had attacked IAS officer Yunus Khan, a Sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM) Nalagarh in Solan.
