India: A man was arrested by the forest department on Wednesday night for allegedly attempting to poach wild animals in the Sanjay Gandhi National Park.
A Tulsi range official got a tip-off that armed poachers were in the forest. “We made two teams of five each and reached the spot between Dahisar and Tulsi lake. There were five men. We managed to nab one accused, Prakash Bhangare (45). One held an officer at gunpoint, so we had to let him go. We have launched a hunt,” said Dinesh Desale, Tulsi range forest officer. “The gang members are tribals from Yeoor.”
