Jajpur (Odisha), Nov 26 (PTI) The Odisha government

has ordered the sealing of 275 illegal stone crushing units in

Jajpur district to bring to a halt the process of illegal

mining of minor minerals, offical sources said on Thursday.

The action was taken against the illegal stone

crushing units for illegal exploration and smuggling of minor

minerals and loss of cores of rupees to the state exchequer,

said an official.

District collector Chakravarti Singh Rathore has

constituted a team of officials from the police, tehsil and

forest and other departments which will shut the stone

crushing units within 15 days and stop the illegal excavation

and transportation, primarily blackstone.

He also asked the district superintendent of police to

provide sufficient force for the operation and also keep a

strict vigil on resurfacing of new illegal stone crushers and

close those outside the listed 275 illegal crushers which are

ordered to be shut. PTI COR SKN KK
