A case has been registered against Rajastan Minister Bharosi Lal Jatav and his four sons on charges of illegal mining following a court order.

The case against 12 persons, including Mr. Jatav, was lodged late on Saturday night with Hindaun Sadar police station and later transferred to CID (Crime Branch) for investigation, police sources said on Monday.

Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Hindaun Randhir Singh directed the police last week to file the case against Mr. Jatav, who is minister for real estate and motor garages in the Congress government in Rajasthan.

Complainant Ashok Pathak, a local resident, had accused the 12 of running illegal stone quarries on forest land.
