Two arrested for clearing forest in Mannar Madhu Reserve

Two persons were arrested by the Madupara Forest Office on Thursday for clearing the forest in the Mannar Madhu Reserve using a fake permit during the curfew period. The Police seized a backhoe used for the purpose.

The two suspects were arrested on a tip-off received by the officers while clearing the forest in the Parappakandal area in the Madhu reserve.

When the officers went to the area, the suspects had cleared more than 80 acres of forest land in the Parappakandal area with the help of a backhoe, forest officials said.

Officials of the Madupara Forest Office have taken steps to produce the two arrested persons in the Mannar Magistrate’s Court.
