18 March 2009

The Special Task Force (STF) of Uttarakhand Police Department assisted by Wildlife Protection Society of India (WPSI), arrested one person and two leopard skins were recovered from him in the Vasant Vihar area of Dehradun today.

The accused hailing from Chamoli district of Uttarakhand together with a co-accused currently absconding, poisoned the mule killed by the leopards. They later skinned the two leopards and stored the skins in order to make an opportunistic profit from the sale.
