Forget about the 20 persons arrested? Who is the actual person behind the sand Mafia? They will easily get bail because criminals themselves get bail. This is nothing they have just pushed the officer’s into water for safety?

Sand mafia in most of the cases is taken up by the big tycoons who are behind the scene . With the financial support they trap the poor .In every field the main theme is Poverty which make them hide the names of the crook involved
