Forest officials rue Narasimhulu’s death

NAGPUR: Soon after the siege and loot of arms at Somnur camp by Naxals, the untimely death of dynamic conservator of forests of the south Chandrapur circle K Narasimhulu has come as a big jolt to the forest department in Gadchiroli. Narsimhulu, whose decision to encourage officials serving in vulnerable areas to use arms for forest protection, has been praised by one and all working in the Naxal-infested Gadchiroli district.

After returning from a workshop in Kolkata recently, the senior official of the 1986-IFS batch fell ill and succumbed at a private nursing home in the city. It is learnt that the popular officer had developed dengue-like symptoms
and jaundice followed by other complications.

According to senior forest officials, Narasimhulu’s presence had posed a big challenge to teakwood smugglers operating in the Naxal-belt of Sironcha. “After taking up the posting, Narasimhulu thwarted more than Rs 3 crore worth
of teakwood smuggling. Usually this wood would have found its way to Andhra Pradesh from Sironcha between

August and October,” said a local forest official posted in Gadchiroli. Most officials remember the senior official
as a tough man with a gentle heart, whose communication skills paved the way for a substantial network base for forest officials in the tribal district.

“He (Narasimhulu) had served successfully in the tribal districts and knew how to strike a chord with them instantly. Everyone had found him easy to approach. He basically preferred field work and could spend long hours patrolling in the jungle,” said the officer, adding that he helped generate huge revenue for the government while serving in the department of transport and marketing at Ballarshah.

Officials also hailed Narasimhulu, father of three daughters and two sons, as an official who ensured close
coordination among the ranks and file. “The exemplary concern that he had for the national wealth being drained by the afia and poachers, and the generation of revenue by harnessing forest produce had set him apart,” said a forest official from Gadchiroli. “He was master in timber exploitation, logging and marketing,” said one.
