Jajpur: After the crackdown on Dankari hills, the Jajpur district administration on Tuesday sealed illegal mining quarries at Rahadpur by installing red flags.

The administration has also clamped prohibitory orders under Section 144 of CrPC in the area.

According to sources, Dharmasala Tehsildar Saroj Kumar Panda along with Jenapur inspector-in-charge conducted raids and sealed No 6 and No 10 mining hill for illegal mining activities. The tehsildar also demarcated the quarries by installing red flags.

The move of the administration came after the National Green Tribunal (NGT) ordered the state government to check the illegal extraction of minor mineral resources from the hills.
