Jammu, July 17: In a much publicized Public Interest Litigations filed by Advocate Dewakar Sharma & Ashish Sharma highlighting various issues involving the conservation/preservation of River Tawi, in which State High Court already banned any construction on bank of River Tawi and mining from river Tawi, a Committee constituted by the State High Court filed its report wherein it is stated that the Committee visited the areas of the subject matter of the instant PILs, wherein it was found that one JCB Machine was found extracting sand from the mid of the River Tawi and loading in two Tractor Trolleys in Bajalta Area. Apart tractor trolleys, tippers were also found carrying the illegally extracted sand from the river towards Nagrota. Although there is a check post of the police and a naaka of Geology and Mining Department but the staff posted on the naakas seem to be in-effective in checking the illegal mining activity in River Tawi.
