Tiger poaching: MP to recommend CBI probe

The Pioneer

19 Mar 2012

The State Government is likely to recommend a CBI probe into the alleged disappearance and poaching of wild cats from Panna Tiger Reserve based on a report submitted by sanctuary authorities.

Sources said the report was submitted to the state government last month after a year-long follow up by the state administration and the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) with PTR over the issue.

They said the report contained all necessary evidence and easons for tiger deaths and their disappearance from the reserve, adding the State may recommend a CBI probe into at least three such cases between 2005 and 2009 in the PTR.

"The report has been submitted to the MP Forest department, which is carrying out discussions with the Home Department to decide on a CBI probe," senior State government officials said, Various social activists and wildlife experts had written to both the State and Central government to constitute a CBI inquiry into cases of tiger death in PTR. Following the representations, the NTCA had a sought reply from the MP government in this regard early last year.
