Pursuant to the earlier direction, Tirunelveli district collector and superintendent of police appeared before the court through videoconferencing. The special government pleader submitted that according to the collector’s report, a penalty of Rs 9.57 crore was imposed on the person involved in illegal mining misusing his licence issued for stock yard. The concerned village administrative officer was placed under suspension and five people were arrested in a case registered in this regard.
A division bench of Justices M Sathyanarayanan and P Rajamanickam observed that the collector’s status report reveals that rampant illegal sand mining was done by the man. Had the officials carried out regular inspections, such kinds of incidents could have been prevented. The judges observed that the collector undertakes to put in place an effective monitoring mechanism to prevent such illegal activities in future. Since these kinds of cases are repeatedly filed, the assistance of additional advocate general M Sricharan Rangarajan is required in cases of similar nature.
