The Supreme Court today said Goa
government cannot be restrained from auctioning iron ore extracted by private
companies which remained unremoved after the expiration of stipulated six
months. The apex court, which relied on its judgement passed earlier this year,
declined the plea of a company - Bandekar Brothers Private Limited - seeking to
restrain authorities concerned for e-auctioning the mined mineral ore produced
by it prior to November 22, 2007.
