Forest guard arrested for firing on encroachers

At the time when unabated encroachment in Lawkhowa Wildlife Sanctuary is going on posing a threat to the sanctuary, a forest guard on duty had to resort to firing to stop an alleged attempt of encroachment by a group of people in Lawkhowa recently. However, the most unfortunate thing was that the forest guard who was only discharging his duty, was ultimately arrested by Nagaon Police on receipt of an FIR from a section of people, without going through the complaint lodged by the Forest Department against the encroachers.
