Police yet to make breakthrough
KILLING OF BEARS
Kupwara, June 24: The police have failed to crack the poaching case in which three black bears were shot dead in Sogam area of this frontier district on June 15.
“Unfortunately there hasn’t’ been any headway in identifying the poachers who killed the endangered Himalyan black bear in compartment number 18 of Sogam Lolab,” said a wildlife official on the conditions of anonymity.
Meanwhile, Wildlife warden North Kashmir has shot a letter (No-309-13/WLW(N)2011-12 dated 16-06-2011) to District Development Commissioner Kupwara and concerned Senior Superintendent of Police a copy of which is lying with Greater Kashmir mentioning that the “gruesome poaching of three black bears is an eye opener for everyone.” “Bears were killed by pumping volley of bullets into their bodies. Then their visceral organs like liver, pancreas and gall bladder were extracted as these fetch huge bucks in the international markets,” the letter read.
The Wildlife warden has urged them to bust the racket immediately and book the culprits.
