Early Times Report

Jammu, Apr 20 : Loot of green gold continues with impunity in Doda forest Division of Chenab circle. The logs lying in t compartment 9 and 10 reflect the ease with which the smugglers operate. It also exposes a nexus between the forest officials and the smugglers.
Earlier similar loot was witnessed in compartment No. 2, 3, & 4 in 2015, but nothing was done by the department against the erring officials who were facilitated the loot.
While talking to "early times", the locals informed that forest officials had nexus with the smugglers . They said that after cutting the green trees, the trunk of the tree is set ablaze which not only pollutes the atmosphere, but also causes threat to the forest area which is undergoing drought since last few years due to less snow and rainfall.
The locals also question the inaction of the Forest Protection Force. They sought action against what they called a defunct force.
Locals said the matter was taken up with the concerned time and again but the loot continues to this day. They have sought intervention of deputy chief minister, Dr Nirmal Singh.
The people claimed that around 12 Green Deodars were illegally cut near Wagi boundary of compartment No. 9-10/Keshwan and demanded strict action against guilty persons.
These people also called upon other people to report the matter of green felling to the concerned authorities.
