Fazilka, November 26

Two acres of freshly sown wheat plants of a farmer were damaged when his neighbour put his paddy stubble on fire in Awa village of Fazilka district.

Shaminder Singh, former sarpanch of Awa village, lodged a complaint with Fazilka Deputy Commissioner that his neighbour Parveen Kumar of Fazilka put the paddy stubble on fire resulting in damages to his wheat plants.

The DC directed the Agriculture Department to hold an inquiry. When officials visited the fields, they noticed that besides Parveen, two another farmers Sahil and Santokh Singh too had burnt paddy stubble.

The smoke emanating from their fields was a health hazard for hundreds of students in a nearby school.

All three farmers have been booked under Sections 188 and 427 of the IPC. None has been arrested.
