ISLAMABAD - Plants and trees on green belts on roads of the federal capital are being damaged, as the people cut branches of the trees for sacrificial animals.

Some people root out small plants and cut branches of the trees in night time daily and take them for sacrificial animals.

The plants, planted with the cost of millions of rupees in many years, are being wasted in a few days. Therefore, the cutting of branches are not only ruining the beauty of the federal capital but also causing millions of rupees loss to the authority.

Nazar Hussain resident of G-7 told APP that there are only a few people who are involved in cutting the trees and plants.

Due to high prices and non availability of animal feed in federal capital the people prefer to arrange it by plants and branches, he added.

The residents urged the authorities concerned to depute some officials to stop the damages of natural beauty as the people cut the branches without any hurdle.

When contacted, CDA officials said that they had not received any complain in this regard and strict action will be taken in case of any complain.
