Udupi: Two different registration numbers for same truck – Illegal sand trafficking alleged

Daijiworld Media Network – Udupi (MS)

Udupi, Nov 25: It is being alleged that illegal sand excavation and transportation is being carried out rampantly in the district.

A truck carrying sand load was found bearing two different registration numbers by the office bearers of Udupi district truck owners’ association. The driver did not even have the trip sheet. They immediately informed the matter to both the police as well as the mining department. A police constable from the city police station arrived on the scene. He took the photo of the truck and asked the driver to take it to the police station.

When the mining department officers arrived on the spot, the truck owner agreed to take the truck to the police station and escaped from the spot. Mining department officials are also alleged to be hand in glove with the illegal transportation of sand. They reported to the spot half an hour after the matter was informed to them. As the mining department officials could not find any truck on the spot they returned without making any further queries.

The mining department officer, who had come to the spot for inspection, was sitting in his vehicle throughout and did not get down at all. The truck which was supposed to go to the police station went to Padu Alevooru and got the sand unloaded.

It is alleged that the officers of the mining department are working in favour of sand transporters and excavators of sand dunes.
