Taking action against the deputy director of mining for not providing information sought, the Haridwar district magistrate has directed that the official’s salary be withheld till further orders.
The official has also been directed to provide clarification in writing. Further, the DM Deepak Rawat and senior superintendent of police Janmejay Khanduri also inspected six stone crushers and got them sealed on finding irregularities there.
According to official communication, to stop illegal mining in the district, the DM had earlier directed the deputy director verbally on many occasions to provide information about the quantity of materials being brought to stone crushers and the quantity being sent out from the crushers.
However since the said information was not provided, it seemed as if the officials was not interested in stopping illegal mining and following instructions of the senior officer. Considering this negligence in work, the DM ordered withholding his salary and sought clarification from him. Further, on Wednesday, the DM and SSP along with other officials acted on complaints of illegal mining and revenue theft at stone crushers and inspected six locations in Buggawala area.
These six stone crushers were sealed due to irregularities found there.
