TNN | Mar 5, 2012

JAIPUR/ALWAR: A senior forest department officer and four guards were attacked by a mob of 50 villagers in Alwar's Sariska sanctuary late on Saturday night when the officer tried to stop them from cutting trees.

Assistant conservator of forest Udairam and four guards sustained injuries. The condition of two guards is stated to be serious. The forest department has registered an FIR against the attackers though no arrests have been made yet.

According to the police, the incident took place at Indo Kafarmi village in the sanctuary around 10.30pm. "Udairam got a tip-off that some people were cutting trees, which is prohibited in the area. A team led by the officer rushed to the spot. They intercepted a truck laden with wood, but the culprits ran away," said a police officer. Udairam and his team went to the village to probe the matter. "A mob of about 50 villagers surrounded the team and attacked them with sticks," said the officer.
