New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation and Income Tax (IT) department has found certain bureaucrats, Eastern Coalfields officials, and some politicians in allowing illegal coal mining, tightening the noose around those involved in these operations.
CBI mentioned that the home ministry restricts all the flows of political funding from illegal sources, therefore CBI and Income tax department will take action against the illegal miners.
This illegal coal mining was carried out in Eastern Coalfields in the Sultanpur, Pandebeswar, Kajora, Sripur, JK Nagar, Kurustoria, Khaskenda, Neokonda, Harishpur, and Haripur areas.
The names are coming up and a CBI source said that it has been traced the illegal illegal mining channeled to the bank accounts of some IPS officers’ family. Around 80 percent per month goes into political funding.
The I-T department, after raiding the office of Anup Majhee the current kingpin of illegal coal mining at Nituria in Purulia a few weeks ago, had established his links with cross-border cow smuggling. Accordingly the CBI nabbed the cattle smuggling king pins, Enamul Haque and Anarul Seikh followed by the arrest of Satish Kumar, a BSF commandant, alleged to have facilitated cattle smuggling.
