Police recovers 286 timber logs, arrests 1 in illegal tree felling case

Shimla, Jan 13 (UNI) Police have recovered wooden slippers and around 286 timber logs in raids carried out during the last two days from the house of a person, who has been detained in the case of illegal felling of trees, under Balbhog forest beat of this forest division.
According to Forest Range Officer Anu Thakur, an FIR was lodged in Police Station Dhali under Sections 32, 33, 41 and 42 of the Forest Conservation Act and 379 of the IPC on Thursday, stating that around 400 green trees had been axed in this forest, falling under Bhalog forest beat.
When police raided the spot, which shares proximity to tourist resort Kufri, as many as 33 bags of wooden coal were recovered on Thursday, while one Roop Ram was detained for questioning, she added.
During interrogation, the accused claimed that green felling was done in private lands and some trees were also cut to produce the wooden coal.
The Forest department has lodged an FIR in the matter. However, it could not arrest the suspect due to the prevailing confusion over the tittle of land, in which the trees were axed.
The Departments of Forest and Police will have to wait till Monday to demarcate the lands, to ascertain if the green felling was done in private land or forests.
