Drop charges in Caranzol forest clash case: Goa forest minister Vishwajit Rane

Forest minister Vishwajit Rane on Saturday wrote to the principal chief conservator of forests (PCCF) to put up a file to the government to allow dropping of charges against the villagers and the range forest officer (RFO) in the May 2021 shooting case at Caranzol, Sattari. The RFO had resorted to firing in the air after Caranzol locals clashed with forest department officials over the felling of trees by the villagers.
