Tiger Skin Found in New Jalpiguri




11 July 2006

One full grown tiger skin and 15 tiger claws were found in an unclaimed parcel in New Jalpaiguri railway station on 7 July 2006. Railway Police sources claimed that the parcel had been lying unclaimed in the parcel room for two years.

The skin, which was around 8 feet long, has been handed over to the Divisional Forest Officer of Wildlife 1 Division, Darjeeling. No arrests have been made so far.

The parcel, which came from Kolkata, had no delivery address. Meanwhile, sources are speculating that railway parcel office employees may have been involved, since the parcel managed to reach New Jalpaiguri from Kolkata without any address.
