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.
