Chief Minister Digambar Kamat assured a delegation of social activists that the machinery installed in the closed mine at Caurem will be removed immediately and also assured that the investigations in Nilesh Gaonkar assault case will be taken to its logical conclusion.
He assured the delegation that the High Court directives will be implemented by the government and also offered to nominate two representatives of the Caurem Adivasi Bachao Samiti on the committee constituted to monitor the transportation of ore from mining areas.
While assuring that the police are seriously investigating the assault on Nilesh Gaonkar, Kamat assured the delegation that those behind the attack will be dealt with.
