According to an estimate, nearly 30 people have been murdered in Madhya Pradesh in the last one and a half years on the order from the mining mafia. Last year, in the reply given by the Union Ministry of Mines in the Lok Sabha, it has been accepted that Madhya Pradesh is second in the case of illegal mining. According to the data, between 2013-14 and 2017-18, around 50,259 cases of illegal mining were reported in Madhya Pradesh, but FIR was registered in only 516 cases. While Maharashtra had the highest number of 1,44,784 cases, but only 794 FIRs were registered there.
