PILIBHIT: Three men wanted in two cases of wildlife crimes surrendered before the court of chief judicial magistrate in Pilibhit on Tuesday. The accused were wanted in two cases of wildlife crime lodged against them by authorities of Pilibhit Tiger Reserve on January 22 and 27. The court rejected their bail applications and sent them to jail under judicial custody. The DFO of Pilibhit Tiger Reserve, Kailash Prakash, told reporters that the offenders had been identified as Fariyad, Mushtak and Rizwan alias Bengali, residents of village Nahrausa under Hajara police station of the district.
He said they had been absconding after the department had recovered from their accomplices 5 kgs bones and teeth of a tiger, body of a swamp dear, one motorcycle and a mobile phone set which had been used in the crime. He added that the accused were compelled to surrender before the court because of the intensive search operation conducted by the forest force against them. However, their accomplice Mukhtyar who had also been booked in the wildlife crime was still on the run, the DFO added.
