A lady mining inspector at Khargone on Wednesday lodged complaint with district collector and superintendent of police against unidentified miscreants who are keeping tab on her and stalking her round the clock.
Complaint by mining inspector once again brought the issue into the limelight as illegal mining in the state on rampant.
Mining inspector Rashmi Pandey in her complaint to collector Neeraj Dubey and superintendent of police Amit Singh said her life is in danger as when she move in town or outside the town for officials purpose or to raid the illegal mining site in the area, about 30 – 35 unidentified bikers use to follow her.
If this is not enough, they use to keep watch on her when she was in home or roaming in the town shopping or other purpose.
Worried over this, Pandey on Wednesday met senior administrative and police officials and lodged her complaint.
Mining inspector claimed that mining mafias in the area hired few youths from the area and paying them Rs 300 to 500 daily just to keep watch on her and mining department team.
“Whenever we move for raid, they got information before we reached their,” she said.
Fearing that in absence of security, she might found herself in danger, inspectors requested for extra security for her.
When contacted SP Singh said that they got complaint from Pandey. “We have asked them to note motorcycle registration numbers. We will provide her adequate security,” Singh said.
It is to be mentioned that illegal miners allegedly attacked mining and administrative personnel at different places in the state.
On June 3 this month, illegal sand miners allegedly attacked mining and administrative personnels at Shajapur and Ratlam district leaving five including three patwaris and two guards injured.
This is was the third attack on government employees in the state by illegal miners this year. Earlier on April 5, a police constable was killed when a sand-carrying truck he was attempting to stop toppled on its side and crushed him at Morena and on May 17, a police inspector narrowly escaped when he was tried to crush under a JCB machine at Rewa.
