Lahore: Beware — snakes at Jallo Park 16


By Shoaib Ahmed

LAHORE, July 26: Jallo Park, a recreational place along the city canal, has become a haunt of deadly snakes, but despite the death of a forest department driver caused by cobra bite no measures have been taken to warn the visitors of the danger or to treat a possible victim.

A number of snake-bite incidents have been reported in the park, and recently a driver lost his life when bitten by a cobra while peeing close to a bamboo cluster. The death has terrorised the park staff.

However, visitors are still unaware of the lurking threat.

Park’s wildlife Director Anwar Maan, confirming presence of deadly snakes there, said these reptiles often remained hidden in thick bushes, tree roots and under different natural covers.

Recently, he said, the park staff had found a pair of cobras under a heap of bricks being loaded on a trolley.

The director said snake-bite incidents had been reported in the park and animals were more exposed to such accidents. Some deer, including a chinkara and a hog deer, had fallen a prey to snake bite, he added.

A park official, on the condition of anonymity, told Dawn that the cobras who killed the driver had become aggressive and chase away those who accidentally tress passed their territory.

A snake charmer said snakes were abundant in the park. “Recently I caught three cobras and put them in the snake house of the park.”

He said he always carried with him a herbal medicine to cure snake bite. Mr Maan said the forest department had surveyed the bamboo cluster that had concentration of snakes and was planning to chop it off.

Sadly, in the entire park there was no signboard to caution the visitors against snakes.

When asked what measures the park management had taken to warn people of snakes, the director said it was the job of the forest department.S

    SUBJECT: CORRUPTION OF MR. MUHAMMAD ANIS, DEPUTY DIRECTOR (ON DEPUTATION)
    PUNJAB LIBRARY FOUNDATION, 4- SHAHRAH-E-AWAN-E-TIJARAT, LAHORE

    Respectfully submitted:
    1. That I, Mr. Shahzad Saleem S/o Muhammad Hanif am a special person (physically handicapped) and also a patient of hepatitis C.
    2. That I am working as librarian (BS. 17) on contract basis in Govt; Central Library, Bahawalpur for the last three and half year.
    3. That my contract has been extended from time to time in routine during the past until last year, when upon its expiry on 07-6-2012, my service contract case was not forwarded to the Secretary Higher Education, Punjab for further extension by Mr. Muhammad Anis Deputy Director Punjab Library Foundation (PLF), who was, at that time, holding the additional charge of the post of the Director public libraries, Punjab .
    4. That Mr. Muhammad Anis who is a lecture of political science in Govt; College, Lahore and presently working on deputation basis as Deputy Director Punjab Library Foundation (PLF), 4- shahrah-e-Ewan-Tijarat, Lahore was, at that time (2012), holding the additional charge of the post of Director Public Libraries Punjab demanded Rs.50000/ as a bribe on the pretext that my contract could not be forwarded as I had earned some average ACRs in the past one and half years. But, it is pertinent to mention that ACR for the year 2011 which was applicable for the extension of my service contract was good and I was quite eligible to earn further extension in contract in service under rules as per previous routine.
    5. That despite the fact that the ACR of the concerning /previous year(2011) was good and there was no hindrance in forwarding my case, even then Mr. Muhammad Anis blackmailed me and forced me to provide him a handsome amount of Rs. 50000/- as a bribe in lieu of forwarding my case.
    6. That I had no way to escape and was compelled by him to the extent that I handed over an amount of Rs. 50000/- (as per his demand) to Mr. Muhammad Anis at Bahawalpur on Wednesday dated 18-7-2012 at 11.00 A.M. during his visit of the Govt; Central Library, Bahawalpur in the presence of two witnesses.
    7. That I am a poor, physically handicapped person still fighting against the illness (hepatitis C) and has to bearing huge expenses on my medicines out of my salary. I am not able to sustain the financial loss caused to me by Mr. Muhammad Anis by way of taking a huge money as a bribe.
    It is, therefore, requested that Mr. Muhammad Anis who is presently working on deputation basis as Deputy Director Punjab Library Foundation (PLF), 4- shahrah-e-Ewan-Tijarat, Lahore may very kindly be called under law and be asked for returning the amount taken by him as bribe from me. It is further requested that he may be proceeded against under the relevant service rules as well as under anti-corruption law for his misconduct and criminal act of taking bribe and be awarded exemplary punishment so that he must avoid such bad practice like taking bribery from government functionaries and others in future for which he has always been found habitual and has ever earned bad repute to the departments where ever he worked on deputation basis . It would not be out of place to mention here that Mr. Muhammad Anis who is a lecturer in political Science in Govt; College Lahore never taught any class, however has always won lucrative posts by way of pleasing his entourage of high- ups on the basis of huge amounts boldly gathered by him as bribe for govt; functionaries and by embezzlement into Govt; funds of the departments where he served on deputation.(Fresh example of his embezzlement is irregularities in the preparation of directory of public libraries in Punjab ) .
