Kundapur: An illegal sand extraction unit was raided by Kota police in the taluk on Thursday, December 20th. The gang was extracting sand at Hirehole rivulet in Belur village in this taluk.

Apparently, the local people had lodged a complaint with the police regarding the illegal sand extraction being done at the location.

A petty politician owns the sand extraction business here. As the police team accompanied by media persons reached the spot, the politician warned the reporters against publishing anything about his unit in the media. He said that media persons had visited the spot to collect money and advised them to publish all news items other than illegal sand mining.

The politician had a heated argument with the reports while the police remained as mute spectators. Finally the police began to conduct inquest, and took into possession a Tata 407 vehicle, a Maruti 800 car and a boat.
