Hiru CIA revealed recently about the massive environmental hazard that has been caused by the auction of a land of an area of more than 8 acres in the hill country for gem excavations by the National Gem and Jewellery Authority.

The license for gem mining in the area will be active till April next year. Yet this is how the area looks like before the passage of 4 months.

Although gem mining using a backhoe machine is against the law of the country, here it has been limited to the law book.
