Act against those alleged to have engaged in illegal coal mining in Meghalaya

The Meghalaya HC on Thursday directed the Assam Police chief to take action against persons accused of being involved in illegal mining and transportation of coal in Meghalaya, and to ensure the safety of the petitioners.

The order came a day after the high court issued a show cause to the Meghalaya government on why the CBI should not inquire into the illegal mining of coal and its use, particularly since the activities “seem to be controlled by persons based in Assam”.
