Divisional backwoods official said that while the Forest officer group was chasing a farm truck weighed down with illegal sand, the locals including Mahaveer halted the group's vehicle to save the mining mafia.

Madhya Pradesh police has booked nine Forest officers for alleged murder following the death of a resident in Morena locale during an activity against wrongfully mined sand in the area, said police. The Forest division has disproved the charges and guaranteed that the expired was destroyed while ensuring the unlawful sand mining mafia.

Police said two eyewitnesses claimed that one Mahaveer Singh Tomar, a 45-years of age inhabitant of Amol Pura village, was pounded and shot dead by Forest division officials after he objected to officials' shooting at the tractor-trolley, weighed down with illegally mined sand, refering to it was a local location.

“Mahaveer’s son Rahul Tomar, 19, filed a complaint with the police and said after abusing his father, forest officials Pramod and Raghvendra shot him dead with their service gun while others used the butt of their guns to assault him. Rahul and two other villagers are claiming to be the eyewitnesses,” Morena’s superintendent of police Lalit Shakyawar said, citing the complaint filed by Mahaveer’s family.

Police said they have filled a case under Section 302 (murder), 147 (punishment for rioting) and 294 (using abusive language) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against the nine forest officials based on the grievance and are further investigating the matter.
