Illegal mining on forest land, No impact of complaints to officials

Raja from Satna says near his village illegal mining work in the forest area is going from last 4 months. People work in the night and stop work during the day. He says I have informed the forest ranger about it and he says he will catch them on spot. Now it is 11.30 in the night the mining work is going on and Ranger is not picking up my phone after picking it up once. I want to bring it to the notice of higher forest officials. Are forest laws only for poor which puts so many restrictions on them? Raja can be reached on 0997745588
