A Forest Officer has been accused of secret connivance with smugglers in Bashistha, Guwahati.
According to sources, the forest officer set a fixed time limit for the trucks of smugglers to cross. The conversation of the truck driver was captured on a hidden camera.
During the conversation between the forest official and the dumper driver, the official said, “I have alerted everyone at 7 pm. I will have no other choice left, if you get caught even after being alerted.”
The incident took place in East Kamrup Forest Division Authority in Bashistha, Guwahati.
What exactly is going on inside the forest is still left to be uncovered. Further investigation underway.
