Ivory Seized in Delhi 


11 August 2005

Six kilos of raw of ivory were seized in Delhi by the Delhi Wildlife Department, with the assistance of the Wildlife Protection Society of India (WPSI).

Acting on information from WPSI sources, a team including Wildlife Inspectors Mr. Negi and Mr. Paramvir Singh raided a room in the Gujarati Samaj Hostel in north Delhi. Four pieces raw tusk were seized and one person was arrested.

The accused is a bangle seller and has a shop in Bhavnagar, Gujarat. It is believed that the ivory was destined for this shop, after being crafted into bangles. According to the accused, he had bought the ivory from an elephant owner in east Delhi, who had himself obtained it through illegal means.
