Bettiah: Deftly working on inputs provided by the New Delhi-based Wildlife Crime Control Bureau and the Wildlife Protection Society of India, West Champaran police on Tuesday arrested two poachers and recovered complete skin and bones of two fully-grown Royal Bengal tigers from their possession. Bettiah SP Vinay Kumar said the arrests were made deep inside the Valmiki Tiger Reserve (VTR).

The SP, in association with VTR officials, had stationed a team of police officers and forest rangers led by ASP (operations) Rajesh Kumar and Ramnagar SDPO Manish Kumar in the VTR. The team included six SHOs from Bettiah and Bagaha.

The two arrested poachers have been identified as Chand Deo Mahto and Krishna Mohan Khatait, both residents of Kala Bairiya village under Laukaria police station in West Champaran district. Spread over 899.38 square km area along the Nepal border, the VTR region is inhabited by scores of Tharu dominated villages.
