Illegal quarrying of stone and sand has been taking place in large scale in Morena for the past many years despite police action against the mafia involved in it.
On Sunday morning, Dharmendra Singh Chouhan, posted in Noorabad police station, was heading a police team to catch the accused of a loot incident reported earlier.
He spotted a dumper carrying registration number MP 06 GA 0974 laden with sand in Dhanela village.

The dumper was parked on the middle of the road and when Dharmendra asked the driver to move and give way, he tried to run away and drove the truck in reverse gear. The constable coming from behind the truck was crushed.
Superintendent of police Navneet Bhasin said, “The sand carried by the truck was quarried illegally.”
The driver has been booked under section 304, culpable homicide not amounting to murder.
