The villagers have urged the district administration to check stone quarry which has been functioning illegally at Halseegekhan in Sathihalli gram panchayat jurisdiction.

 “Due to the quarry, the quarry dust particles have entered coffee estates nearby. The river and water sources have been polluted. The use of explosives in the quarry have resulted in cracks on the walls of the houses nearby,” the villagers said.
