Illegal sand mining: 11 motorboats seized

The five teams conducted raids in Havanur, Shakaara, Havamshi, Belavigi, Niralagi, Halagi, Marola, Mevundi and Theradahalli villages and seized 11 motorboats. Two boats were destroyed on the spot.

The total worth of the seized boats is estimated to be Rs 45 lakh, however no cases have been registered.

Haveri subdivisional officer Rajendra Cholan said since it was a pre-planned raid, those indulging in illegal mining managed to flee with the sand and the lorries. Therefore, no cases have been registered against anyone as yet.
