Sources close to Justice MB Shah and even in the Centre have categorically told that Justice MB Shah is to be taken off the current assignment and will be sent to cover another concern in Gujarat. This is expected to put a clamp down on the Goa Mining report of which a preliminary copy has already been submitted to the Union Ministry of Mines but not yet released to the media.

Since evidence coming out revealed gross violations by not only the Goa government but also the Union ministries of mines and environment. has exposed the extent of illegal mining in Goa over numerous articles. In fact some of the details of the report formed the base to Justice MB Shah’s investigation. Justice MB Shah is fighting his expected sidelining for the Mining Report and this matter is expected to gain prominence in the days to come.
