Despite a Supreme Court ban, the mining mafia continues its
operations right under the nose of the district administration and the defence
services. An HT team witnessed three dynamite blasts within a half hour span in
the endangered Aravalli zone. The mafia is operating in at least four live
mines even as the district administration continues to remain in denial.
"Today (Thursday) itself I constituted a committee headed by the
sub-divisional magistrate to look into all Aravalli related violations. I have
been told there are no reports of mining in Gurgaon. However, I will look into
the matter," TL Satyaprakash, Deputy Commissioner, Gurgaon told HT.
