Jaleswar: After repeated telecast of news on News 7 related to illegal sand mining in the Balasore district, the NGT team has initiated an inquiry into the case. A 12 member NGT team visited many sand mines in the Jaleswar block.
Notably, Prameya News 7 has been informing its audience how Sand Mafias from West Bengal have been stealing sand from the river valleys in the district. The district administration was unable to stop this.
However, after the coverage, the sand mafias had left the place with their equipment. According to the NGT Team, sand mining has been stopped for a while in the area.
