Driver fined for Sambhar Death

9th Dec., 2004

In what is believed to be the first instance of a person being penalised for killing a wild animal due to negligence, a man was fined Rs. 60,000 for hitting and killing a deer in a road accident on 4 December 2004, on the Dehradun-Haridwar highway.

The Bolero vehicle overturned in the accident that occurred near the Lachchiwala Forest Picnic Spot. Mr. Paramjit Singh, Director of the Anti-Poaching Cell of the Uttaranchal Forest Dept. and Mr. R.S. Kenda, Wildlife Warden, Dehradun, rushed to the scene and arrested the driver.

The case was compounded with the hefty fine and the vehicle returned to the owner.

“We hope this case will deter drivers from speeding through forest areas” said Belinda Wright, Executive Director of Wildlife Protection Society of India.
