The night of December 24 had become a parrot problem for the city police when two people from Brahmpuri had picked up a fight over possession of a parrot.
When the neighbours could not settle the matter, the matter reached the police station.
The police brought the parrot to police station and the bird enjoyed the hospitality of cops. Later it was sent to forest department where officials are now considering release of the parrot in the forests.
The story of the parrot is doing rounds among the people of the town these days while they await news of the parrot being released in the wild.
Though the core area of police is maintaining law and order situation in the city, crowd control, traffic management but Haridwar police had to control a parrot which had become the bone of contention between two families of Brahmpuri in Kankhal.
A family in Brahmpuri had tamed a parrot which had flown away over a year ago. Now it was spotted in the neighbourhood of that house. Muskan, who claimed to be the owner of the parrot averred that she had reared that parrot since childhood and even taught him to speak while the other claimant Vinay Kumar said that he was having the parrot for the past three years. Some elderly people tried to bring compromise between the two but in vain.
Speaking to this correspondent, police station in charge of the city Kotwali, Navin Chandra Semwal said, “We tried our best to resolve the matter between the two, but ultimately the bird had to be handed over to forest department. The department would release it in the forest area.”
Range officer of the Haridwar forest division, DP Uniyal said that after the medical examination of the parrot, it shall be released in the wild. Read more posts…
