The Lohian Khas police have booked two residents of Kapurthala district for illegal excavation of earth near dhussi bundh of the Sutlej river.

Mining inspector Ajay Kumar complained to the police that earth was illegally being excavated from dhussi bundh of the Sutlej river in Mandala Chhana village.

He said Kulwinder Singh of Gidderpindi village informed the department that illegal excavation of earth at Mandala Chhana village was damaging dhussi bundh and could create a breach in the bundh during the upcoming monsoon season.
