And the road from Murti crossing over Chapramari forests reaches National Highway at a junction that is still called “Khunia” crossing. As the year passed wildlife grew in this region whereas the dacoits slowly started to fade away. Today Murti is one of the most peaceful and arguably one of the best places to soak into the natural exuberance.
