    What ever it May be. Forest Officials too are corrupted including the Head. Paro DFO Kaka has given three months time to the Illegal Sandal wood importer whose consignment was seized by the Park officials of Haa near Hatey. It was learnt that DFO kaka and his Aum are the Family friends of the Sandal wood Importers Parents.

    If the head of Department has power to give such time frame then the his subordinates will not be able to perform their duty effectively.
