800 logs of trees found buried at elite Delhi Golf Club
He said the Forest Department suspected that the trees were cut without permission and the logs were buried in pits especially dug for this purpose.
Out of the 895 logs, 424 big logs of trees were found. Some logs were in a decayed state, indicating that they were buried some time ago, while some appeared to have been freshly cut, the official said.
The official said 895 logs were found during an ongoing probe which would soon be completed and a report would be submitted.
The Delhi government said that the range officer of the south division of the Forest department had filed a complaint with the Hazrat Nizamuddin police station over illegally cutting the trees.
The matter of the alleged illegal cutting of trees at the club came to light after an existing member of the club complained against the Delhi Golf Course, alleging that about 100 trees have been cut by them without permission from the Forest Department. The complainant also alleged that the trees were cut two years back and dumped in the golf area.
