By Times of India – Another forest guard beaten on duty in Fbd Gurgaon: For the second time in ten days, a forest guard was allegedly thrashed by a group of men with sticks in the Aravalis in Faridabad. No police complaint has been filed so far. According to the Faridabad forest department, a forest guard was inspecting a forest area in Surajkund, Ankhir village for encroachment on Wednesday when a group of men carrying sticks accosted him. They allegedly threatened him of dire consequences and thrashed him. The area is protected under the Punjab Land Preservation Act (PLPA). Last week, another guard was taking photos of an illegally-built wall in the same area on his mobile phone as evidence on June 22 when the same group approached him. In his complaint to police, the guard said the men snatched his phone and deleted the photos before thrashing him.

We razed some of the illegal structures after a guard was thrashed last week,” said Raj Kumar, divisional forest officer, Faridabad.
