one thing i have seen here in chitwan is rampant deforestation.
it appears that the overnight curfew has been blessing for "smugglers." at night no security personnel can be seen on patrol. if you are lucky, you can come across armed maoists in some areas of the bharatpur municipality. however, it common that you see timbre-smugglers!
i encountered a group of "kaath-chors" for two times.
they bring timbre from the Bhojad jungle area, early in the morning and sell them in cheap price.
the maoists and the smugglers are cashing in on the curfew. it's the public who's been sufferring from the curfew.
