Mumbai: Even as the dust has yet to settle over Malegaon Additional District Collector Yashwant Sonawane’s gruesome murder by the oil mafia, another government official was attacked in Maharashtra, this time by the sand mafia.

According to reports, revenue official Srinivas Patil was attacked by goons in Sangli for trying to stop illegal sand mining. The attack took place earlier this week.

Srinivasan was attacked with stones by three men while he was chasing a truck full of sand on his motorcycle.
The police have arrested the three suspects.

Yashwant Sonawane was burnt alive by members of the oil mafia in Nashik district on Tuesday.
