Shah Commission begins probe into illegal mining in Orissa

Friday, 09 Dec 2011

PTI reported that the Centre appointed Shah Commission led by former Supreme Court judge Justice MB Shah has formally began investigation into illegal mining in Orissa.

The Commission held a discussion with the district authorities of Keonjhar and Sundergarh besides authorities of the railways, Indian Bureau of Mines and forest officials.

Collectors, superintendents of police, divisional forest officers, regional manager of the pollution control board and vigilance officer of the south eastern railways attended the meeting.

The commission members are scheduled to visit certain mines in Joda areas of Keonjhar district and Koida area in Sundergarh district, an official said.

The commission was unlikely to hold public hearing due to shortage of time.
