The association, in a release, alleged that most of the time, it is the powerful and people with connections who are extracting stones and sand from the riverbed by using heavy machineries and vehicles.

The common people and villagers, residing near the river, are oftentimes harassed by police for quarrying in the riverbed. However, the government officials turned a blind eye when those powerful people came to quarry at the river, it alleged.
