Yamunanagar, November 3

A mining firm, PS Buildtech Jathlana, has been booked for allegedly trying to divert the flow of the Yamuna by constructing an illegal bundh to undertake mining activities in MT Karhera village of Yamunanagar district.

It is the second case of violation of the National Green Tribunal guidelines in the village in the past 15 days. On October 23, another mining firm — M/s Kawaljeet Singh Batra — was booked for attempting to divert the flow of the Yamuna.

Jaswinder Singh Hooda, Sub-Divisional Officer, Radaur, said he along with junior engineers had visited the quarry in MT Karhera on September 21. It was found that PS Buildtech had tried to divert the natural flow of the Yamuna by making a bundh using sand, flouting the NGT guidelines.

On the complaint of Hooda, a case was registered against PS Buildtech (Block-12) under Section 431 (damaging river, road or bridge) of the IPC and Section 45 of the Canal and Drainage Act, Haryana, at Jathlana police station yesterday.

Dharampal Singh, SHO, Jathlana, said the Irrigation Department had provided them photographs of the obstruction by the firm.
