PASIGHAT, JUL 11:

An auto driver was grievously injured, while three auto-rickshaws were damaged when a big tree fell down due to excessive rain today morning at Mirmir Tinali near All India Radio Station, Pasighat.

According to the Auto-Stand Secretary of Mirmir Tin-ali Tayong Siram, the big tree fell down suddenly upon the Auto stand which also blocked the normal traffic movement along the main CC Road. Had it happened in non rainy days the situation would have been more dangerous as several auto rickshaws are parked under the shed of this big tree. Due to heavy rain from last four days and particularly nonstop rain since early this morning, there were no much rush of people and so Auto drivers were also not on the auto stand for which only one person was injured and three auto rickshaws were damaged. Else, many Auto rickshaws along with several drivers including passengers/commuters would have been killed," he said.

The injured person, Bajong Pertin was immediately rushed to the town s Bakin Pertin General Hospital, Pasighat where two stitches were done on his injuries who was later declared safe; else the extent of damages caused to his auto rickshaw shows its seat occupant won t escape deaths. auto rickshaws of Bajong Pertin, Orik Megu and Gogom Tayeng was damaged, informed Auto Stand leader Tayong Siram.

However, the clearance of the fallen tree is under process after cutting off the electric connectivity of that area and restoration efforts are on. When enquired about the age of the tree and whether it was planted during British period by Britishers, some people informed that, it was planted by a laundryman. And when that laundryman one Pawaru Prasad, who originally hails from Uttar Pradesh was asked, he confirmed that he had planted the tree some 36 years ago during August 1983. The tree was planted as there were no shady trees around the location then in those days too and the sapling of the tree was collected from nearby Forest Department.
