An unfortunate incident took place at the Kirtan wali Gali, Sitabuldi on Wednesday. A big old Neem tree fell on a house in the afternoon hours.
Mahesh Sen, the owner of the house had submitted a letter seeking permission to cut the old tree. However, NMC did not allow Mahesh to cut the tree by himself. NMC said that their workers will cut the tree.
Mahesh Sen explained in the application how the tree was causing problems at their house. He further wrote “I urge the NMC to rectify the problem and grant permission to cut the tree for the safety of my family. I will be planting trees at various places in the coming time.”
Priyanshu Sen, son of Mahesh Sen told The Live Nagpur that “We reached out to the NMC 3 months back but we didn’t get a timely response. The results are unfavorable for us. Being from a middle-class family, it took years for us to build the house.”
