Dying Banyan tree given 'saline drip' (Video / Pics)

A 700-year-old banyan tree in the southern Indian state of Telangana has been put on special "drips" filled with diluted pesticides, to ward off insects.

The tree is spread across three acres and is reportedly the second largest of its kind in the world.

Officials are trying to save the tree - a popular tourist attraction - from termite infestation.

Pipes have also been tied to the roots to prevent spread of further infection.
