Mahbubnagar: Illegal sand mining at Pedda Wagu in Polepally village of Jadcherla Mandal has gone unchecked for some time causing loss to the government exchequer. According to villagers, despite many complaints the revenue officials have turned a blind eye, taking advantage of which the sand mafia had been doing its business unabated.

Recently, the sand miners also established artificial sand minting centre illegally near the river side and are digging the available sand from the Pedda Wagu rivulet.

However, after repeated complaints to the revenue officials, recently the VRO of the village had inspected the area and seized a tractor and sand mining centre. It is alleged that even though the village revenue assistants were aware of these issues they never reported it to the concerned higher officials.
