A Haryana deputy superintendent of police (DSP) claimed a dumper-truck allegedly tried to run him and SDM Gharunda over when they went to inspect an alleged illegal mining site in the area.
"We got information on an illegal mining site here in Gharunda. When we came to inspect, a dumper-truck driver tried to run us over," DSP Manoj Kumar said on Friday.
However, they didn't suffer any injuries in the incident.

"SDM Gharunda and DSP had gone to inspect a report of illegal mining when a dumper-truck driver tried to attack them. Mining department and police are taking action in the matter," Mr Punia told ANI.
