The department originally found a number of hotels and resorts allegedly encroaching on Sirinath National Park. The suspected encroachment cases involve 379 plots of land, covering about 3,000 rai of forest land. The department is pressing forest encroachment charges against the first batch of 14 hotel and resort operators.
