Mining Mafia kills constable in Dholpur, Rajasthan

Mining Mafia of Chambal region in Rajasthan and MP Boarder area claim one more life yesterday within three months of killing IPS officer Narendra Kumar in Morena. Mahendra Singh (46), a head constable posted at Sagarpara police outpost, was crushed by a truck which came to Dholpur carrying illegally-mined gravel from Morena on Tuesday. Mahendra and another head constable Virendra Singh chased four trucks on their bike Tuesday afternoon. One of the trucks hit their bike and ran over Mahendra. Virendra managed to escape with minor injuries. The police seized four trucks, but could not arrest anybody. Officers said the drivers managed to escape after leaving the vehicle.
Mahendra, a resident of Dholpur town, was earlier posted at the anti-dacoit branch. He was transferred to the Sagarpara police outpost recently to keep a watch on transportation of illegally mined produce between Dholpur and Morena. "We are investigating if there is any link between the culprits behind the murders of Narendra Kumar and the head constable,” said Dholpur SP Harendra Kumar. Police are conducting raids to track the truck drivers.
