Tiger Skin Seized in Nagpur 


16 August 2005

One tiger skin was seized by the Maharashtra Forest Department on 8 August 2005 at Nagpur. Two people were arrested.

The accused, who are residents of the neighbouring state of Chhattisgarh, revealed during interrogation that their associates in Chhattisgarh had some more skins.

A trap was set for the remaining gang members by arranging a meeting in Chhattisgarh. A team of enforcement personnel led by the Divisional Forest Officer (Vigilance) of Nagpur, and assisted by the Wildlife Protection Society of India (WPSI), went to the meeting place.

Two gang members turned up, and were arrested, but no further recovery was made. The Forest Departments of Chhattisgarh and Maharashtra are investigating the case..
