At a meeting of the district task force (DTF) on Tuesday, DC Vikram Singh told officials of various departments to plug all loopholes and ensure a complete ban on illegal and unauthorised mining of materials, including river sand in the district.

Issuing instructions, he directed officials to conduct day-and-night patrolling and strict monitoring of all such activities in all sensitive areas and pockets.
