Carrying Arms, Instruments and Weapons inside Dhanushadham Protected Forest is strictly prohibited.

Carrying Instruments inside Dhanushadham Protected Forest is strictly prohibitted


Range Forest Officer at Dhanushadham Protected Forest, Mr. Shankar Narayan Jha arranged a conference inside the forest in presence of Local Community members, youth, teacher, political parties, Administrative Department, Mithila Wildlife Trust members and other stakeholders on 24.01.2014 (10.10.2070 B.S.) and announced that today onward carrying carry Arms, Instruments and Weapons like Axe (Banchro), Spade (Kodalo), Sickle (Hansiya), Khurpi etc. will be strictly prohibited.

All the members present in the conference, promised and signed the minuting which clearly mentions that the instruments found inside forest will be seized by Forest Department and none of them will be influencing or forcing the Forest Department to release the seized instruments.

As per survey conducted by Mithila Wildlife Trust, the forest has lost its equilibrium within 7-10 years. Tree Bark of 90% adult tree has been removed by the heavy population of surrounding villages. Firing the forest, cutting down the trees illegally to fulfill their need of firewood, illegal sand mining and overgrazing are some of the main causes which has made this pathetic condition of the forest.

The action taken by Forest Department is quite impressive. It will definitely support to protect the diminishing forest, which is the only patch of forest remaining in Terai region of Dhanusha district.
