<p>Officials from the Forest Department and the police stopped an automobile, which was followed by the seizure. 307 kg of mushrooms were found during the search.</p>
<p>According to Rushal Garg, DFO, Udhampur, “Acting on specific information, the Range Officer, along with the team, and with the help of the police, intercepted a car and recovered 307 kilograms of Guchhi (wild mushrooms).”</p>
<p>The gochhi mushroom is regarded as the priciest one in the world. Its market price is between $25,000 and $30,000 per kilogram. From the automobile, as much as 307 kg of mushrooms were retrieved. The haul may have a market value of Rs 90–92 lakhs, according to Garg.</p>
<p>Guchhi are wild mushrooms that are difficult to cultivate and that need certain ecological circumstances in order to flourish, including particular soil types, moisture levels, and temperature ranges.</p>
<p>Guchhi mushrooms are rare, which adds to their expensive cost.</p>
