When State PWD minister Parimal Suklabaidya is continuously citing stone crisis as a prime concern of being unable to repair the infrastructures in Assam, illegal stone syndicate continues to operate in Cachar district of Assam.  

 

 

 Daily hundreds of trucks are seen transporting passing stones in Cachar district, illegally collected from different parts of Jatinga stone quarry.

Police on September 23 seized 10 illegal stone loaded trucks in Cachar. The drivers of the vehicles were carrying stolen stones illegally collected from different parts of Jatinga stone quarry.  

 

 

 Along with the drivers, complains have also been raised against brother of Katigora’s MLA Amar Chand Jain regarding the matter. According to sources, ML Jain, brother of Amar Chand Jain has taken the lease of the quarry, which allows him to carry 37,500 cubic meters of stones in 3 months from the quarry.  

 

 

 But the worrying news is that ML Jain has been transporting more than 200 stone laded trucks daily which will soon exceed the limit of 37,500 cubic meters of stones for 3 months.
