Baripada, May 7: Badasahi Tehsildar Mamtaj Moharana has been placed under suspension for dereliction of duty, informed the state Revenue and Disaster Management Department.

The order issued by the department stated that during the period of suspension, Moharana shall be at Mayurbhanj Collectorate and shall not leave the headquarters without obtaining prior permission of the Collector.

As per reports, Mamtaj had allegedly helped a sand mafia who had been granted the sand mining lease at Dingira and Arapata riverbeds near Badasahi, in mining more than his limits and flouting all the guidelines.

The NGT had also ordered the Collector to collect Rs 17.3 cr from the sand mafia as a fine for his illegal lifting of sand and had even sought an explanation on why actions have not been taken against the Tehsildar.
