Early Times Report
Jammu, May 10: Four Shesham trees worth over Rs. 20 Lakhs, standing tall in the premises of Government High School Lakhanpur were cut down for unknown reasons and the wood mysteriously disappeared from the school; the administration has so far maintained a silence over the matter.
According to sources, four Shesham trees, whose age was about 70-80 years, had been standing tall inside the premises of GHS Lakhanpur. They were not a problem but a boon for students, who used to sit under their shade during summers.
"Without taking the permission of School management or the Zonal Education Officer Lakhanpur, the age-old trees were axed down by some influential people of Lakhanpur", sources said, adding that the wood of the trees was transported to some undisclosed location by the perpetrators.
The cost of the wood was over Rs. 20 Lakhs in the market but such huge volume of wood was transported from the school premises and the school management kept mum over the entire matter.
"At present the stumps of the trees could be found there inside the school and so far no enquiry has been ordered by the school administration or the Zonal Education Officer Lakhnapur over the matter", sources said, adding that the trees were the property of the school but school has not got any share from the wood of the trees.
"It was virtual killing of the age-old trees by the perpetrators and instead of initiating any enquiry the administration has been maintaining silence of the entire episode and has been shielding the perpetrators of the crime", sources alleged.
An enquiry must be ordered by Director School Education Jammu against the entire episode and the involved officials as well as the perpetrators must be punished.
