India's mining mafia

2 officals escaped unhurt when goons of the mining mafia attacked them near the Neugal river where they had gone to check illegal mining after complaints of villagers. They said the illegal mining was continuous and widespread. A JCB and two haul trucks were engaged in the illegal cutting of gravel banks.
A lathi is a heavy stick often of bamboo bound with iron used in India as a weapon.

The wealth of the country is looted openly with regulation virtually non-existent.
As they reached the mining site the men were attacked with lathis. Rivers and hills in the country are dug illegally every day.
