Feb 2, 2017-

The District Forest Office (DFO) Doti have suspended two staff for their involvement in illegal logging of pinewood at Malika Community Forest in Pipalkande, Siddhababa Community Forest in Thali and Masani Community Forest in Naku. District Forest Officer Badri Kumar Karki said Assistant Forest Officer Sachidananda Singh and forest guard Nara Bahadur Sahu were suspended after an enquiry established their involvement in the illegal act. Around 11,000 cu ft of pine wood was found cut at the three community forests. Villagers said smugglers felled many pine trees over the past month. The pine logs recovered from Tudepani, Jagenakhola, Rakastal and Kope areas were handed over to the concerned community forests Monday. (PR)
