Rs 6 cr worth illegally stored ore seized

Official sources said 5000 ton of ore belonging to Patvegar Mines and 2800 ton of ore of Sandeep Rane Mines were found. Mining companies of Bellary, Chitradurga, Gadag and Bagalkot transporting ore to Goa had dumped it in the forest area of Ramanagar illegally.

The raids were being carried out on the instructions of chief forest conservator U V Singh after he visited the ore stored area in the forest.  The mines companies have taken permission from Forest Department and Department of Mines and Geology only to transport the ore and not to store it in the forest area.
