  • Hats off to the team. A clear

    Hats off to the team. A clear cut case of fence eating the crop. For what purpose the forest officials are getting the salary from Central Govt? Their duty is to protect the forests. These officials are shame to the nation. Let them get the maximum punishment. Congrats to all the members who worked exposing this nexus.

  • Not recording the cases is

    Not recording the cases is hardly surprising. Happens all the time. Maybe not a nexus, but the MIKE elephant reporting for illegally killed elephants in several sites is a case in point. Very often rangers call poaching cases 'a headache' - the powers that be can make even dead elephants disappear overnight. What is worthy of note is that this time a forest officer himself has investigated and reported this without pulling any punches. Hats off to Mr Murthy - one wishes there were more of his kind in the forest department, who can do his (moral) duty fearlessly. To be fair, H S Pabla is known to be one of the rare breed - a good officer - let's hope he has not lost against the 'system' and will do what is right. Irrespective of the fact that the cases are old - let's not have a statute of limitations on a crime as heinous as wiping out an entire population of a wild animal.

  • It is an eye-opening report

    It is an eye-opening report by DTE. With so much hoopla about saving tigers and launching campaigns that some of the biggest celebrities of the film and cricketing industry are endorsing, this report tells us how important it is to work with the government in tandem and stop poaching or else we will lose out tigers forever.
