Mysuru: Even as the authorities are leaving no stone unturned to check unruly lot from marring the ecology of Chamundi Hill, stray incidents still pose a threat.
Snake rescuer Suryakeerthi who had been to the hill, to feed monkeys which he has been doing for several years, came across a pile of used sugarcane set on fire on the roadside of the hill.
Following this, Suryakeerthi shot a video of smoke emitting from the embers in the remains of the waste. If it was summer the situation would have been different, as it wouldn’t have taken much time to spread dud to sweltering heat. As the monsoon has set in, the tragedy was averted, Suryakeerthi explains.
But the concerns remain still as highlighted by Suryakeethi as it is a tendency among the tourists to dispose waste and set it on fire. For now, the entry to the Hill is prohibited due to lockdown, but there are miscreants who can hoodwink any watchful eyes.
With Chamundi Hill having a population of hundreds of households and exclusive solid waste management in place, Suryakeerthi wants the authorities concerned to tighten the rules to rein in such mischievous acts.
