New Delhi: Various prohibited items were seized with the assistance of the Wildlife Protection Society of India in two separate incidents today.

One leopard skin was seized, and two persons arrested by the Special Task Force of the Uttarakhand Police in Dehradun, Uttarakhand.

Two leopard skins, the gall bladder of a Himalayan black bear, the musk pod of a musk deer, and other items were seized by the Special Operations Group of the Uttarakhand Police in Sukhi Dhang, Uttar Kashi, Uttarakhand. One person, who is suspected to be a longtime trader in wildlife products, has been arrested in this case.
