One held in Goa illegal mining case

A Special Investigation Team (SIT) of the Goa police, which is probing cases of illegal mining in the State, arrested the accused, Imran Khan, on Tuesday evening.

Superintendent of Police Karthik Kashyap, who is heading the SIT probe, said Khan extracted iron-ore amounting to crores of rupees between 2007 and 2012 during the Congress-led coalition government headed by Chief Minsiter Digambar Kamat.

He allegedly acted at the behest of an influential politician in extracting ore from TC No. 65/61 belonging to the mining lease holder, Amalia Figeriedo.
