Three cars damaged as old tree falls

Mysuru, November 18:- Three cars parked on Ramavilas Road in the city were badly damaged after an old tree fell on them due to gusty wind on Wednesday morning.

The traffic was held up for some time as it took some time for the Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) staff to clear the mess.

Apparently, it is the duty of the Forest Department to fell old trees that pose a serious threat but it does not seem to be the case.

Forest Department officials are in a slumber in not removing weak trees across the city which are on the verge of crashing and taking the lives of people and damaging many vehicles. Tree felling comes under the purview of Forest Department, said the MCC officials. (MR/KS)
