Mangaluru: The Dakshina Kannada District Sand Lorry Owners’ Union has accused former deputy commissioner of the district, Sasikanth Senthil of being a corrupt officer. Mr Senthil has resigned from his post on Friday.

Speaking to the media on Sunday, the president of the association Jayaraj Shetty said that Senthil had created several lobbies with regard to sand mining during his tenure with ulterior intentions and also claimed that the erstwhile DC had committed irregularities in the matter of 10,000 metric tonnes of waste collected by the dredging of fishing harbor.

Mr Shetty further claimed that he had granted GPS tender for a company blacklisted in Udupi, and had committed wrongs through the formation of sand bazaar application without government authorization.

“Deputy Commissioner Sasikanth Senthil was responsible for the increase of sand price of from Rs 3000 to Rs 14000. He erred in conducting dredging at Thumbay dam. For a single permit, he permitted sand extraction of sand at various places. He had received kickback in granting of tender to a company named T For You. Wrongs were also committed in fixing of GPS to sand trucks and in giving the seized sand to a single company. Even in the sand distribution, DC supported some political leader and also some former ministers. MLA U T Khader also intervened in the matter,” he claimed and added that Senthil has provided wrong information to the state high court when it sought details.

The association has decided to complain to the state Lokayukta with regard to all these scams with a request conduct probe, informed Jayaraj.
