Rewa (Madhya Pradesh): A police official in Madhya Pradesh's Rewa district suffered injuries on his legs and hands while trying to escape an attempt to crush him under an excavator (JCB) machine at an illegal mining site.
S.S. Mishra, the sub-divisional official of Sirmaur area, told IANS that the police station in-charge of Sirmaur V.P. Singh was on patrol duty with his team at night when he noticed mining work being carried out. He then called out to the JCB driver.

Police seized the JCB machine and arrested its driver Manoj Sahu as he tried to flee. A case was also filed against the JCB owner.
