There was some uproar and confusion in the city on Tuesday, after some army personnel were seen loading pieces of wood in their truck. This action was spotted by some intelligence men, who also saw an army truck loaded with wood pieces parked outside Des Raj & Co Saw Mill on Tuesday afternoon.

They informed their seniors, who took note of the information and decided to act on it and stop any illegal activity, if possible.

Soon, a Major rank officer reached the spot and inquired about the incident. Army officials soon decided to load the wood back to cantonment.

Later in the day, Army officials claimed that the wood was brought from outside the Cantonment to cut these for a communal kitchen and that no illegality was involved in the entire operation.

The incident raises a question on whether the intelligence officials overreacted or was it a simple case of the army not keeping its parallel agency in the loop over its activities and plans.
