The petitioner claimed that on account of the illegal mining, about 16 labourers have died in blasting and other connected activities.
It cited one specific incident of 25 August, 2011 in Bhiwani tehsil when six people died and another incident of May 18 this year in which 10 people perished in illegal mining in village Choharpur, where bodies of only three labourers have been recovered so far.
According to the application, the Central Empowered Committee (CEC) had submitted a detailed report on January 4, 2010, about large scale illegal mining in the state but the state government chose to "ignore" such activities.
The CEC had observed that there is massive illegal mining taking place in the reserved forest area falling under Udhanwas village where at several places the hillock has been completely blasted out for the purpose of carrying out illegal mining.
The CEC, in its report, had also emphasised that large scale illegal mining was on account of lack of environment clearance in relation to thousands of mines operating in less than five hectares of land, the application said.
