‘Former dacoit head of mining gang in Panna’

BHOPAL: A police team led by senior officers was attacked by members of a mining gang during their inspection at Harrai village in MP’s Panna district. “No one was injured. We have identified the gang leader as Kuber Singh, a former dacoit of the area now active in illegal sand mining. He has a gang of goons who mine and sell the sand in neighbouring UP,” a police official said. However, Panna SP Anil Maheshwari sought to downplay the incident. “Woh UP ke badmash the (they were criminals from UP),” he said.

The sand mining mafia is active in almost all Madhya Pradesh districts, destroying riverbeds that dry up in the winter and peak summer months and threatening many major rivers.

The incident followed the killing of young IPS officer Narendra Kumar allegedly by the mining mafia, an assault on another IPS officer and the killing of a constable trying to stop illegal sale of liquor on holi.

Narendra Kumar was killed on Thursday while trying to stop a tractor trolley ferrying illegally mined stones in Morena district, the same day a group of supporters of a BJP legislator attacked another IPS officer and his team trying to prevent sale of liquor.
