Bhubaneswar: An eight-member team of the Centre-appointed Shah Commission led by former Supreme Court judge Justice MB Shah on Wednesday arrived in Odisha to investigate illegal mining in the state.
The commission members would visit Keonjhar district

The members would conduct a public hearing in Keonjhar
district and would visit some iron ore and manganese mines on

The team would also visit Koida mines in neighbouring
Sundergarh district, the official said.
The team members will have a discussion with senior
government officials like the chief secretary and secretaries
of different departments here after returning from Keonjhar

"We have complied with all the queries made by the
commission," Chief Secretary BK Patnaik told reporters here.
