The Madhya Pradesh High Court today upheld its ban on sand-mining in the Sardar Sarovar and Maheshwar dams catchment area, spread over Dhar, Barwani and Khargone districts.

Chief Justice AM Khanwilkar and Justice KK Trivedi gave order on a contempt petition lodged by Narmada Bachao Andolan leader Medha Patkar, who submitted that sand mines are still being run in the area.

Earlier, the Court sought to learn from the state government and the Narmada Valley Development Authority as to who approved the mines and when and who owns the related land in the catchment area.UNI XC-AC RJ AN2207
