Deep pits found, illegal mining of red sand alleged
With construction activity picking up across the district and new roads being laid, the menace of illegal sand mining has once again reared its head.
Months after The Hindu reported about illegal mining at Cheryal, similar allegations have surfaced at Dasugadd Tanda, barely 15 km from the district headquarters.
Just about a kilometre from Sangareddy-Narsapur road, one has to take a left turn and travel for some distance to see new chasms that run so deep that two-storey buildings could be buried in them. Digging of red sand, a crucial component in construction, has been taking place over past few months, but officials are allegedly looking the other way.
