Malegaon sub-divisional forest officer Jagdish Yedlawar was reported to the Jalna Research Centre.
Meanwhile, six Assistant Conservator of Forests of Nashik have been transferred. However, as no one else has been appointed in his place, the concerned ACF will have to take charge for the next few days. A change in posting is likely again as some of the ACFs who are eligible for transfer will get promoted soon.
