An organization called Meenavar Viduthalai Iyakaam has lodged an FIR against companies for being involved in illegal beach mining. A petition to stop illegal activities was submitted at the District Police Office in Tuticorin district.
The recent allegation of illegal beach sand mining has put several mining companies in a fix. The state government has suspended all illegal activities and set up an investigation team to look into the matter. These developments are causing financial losses to companies like VV Minerals and others.
