Alwar cops held drill near Critical Tiger Habitat, says probe

JAIPUR/ALWAR: The flooring on which Alwar law enforcement officials had fired tear fuel pictures as part of their riot-control coaching drill a week ago, was positioned in an Eco-Sensitive Zone (ECZ) close to the Critical Tiger Habitat (CTH) of Sariska Tiger Reserve, an preliminary probe via the woodland division has revealed.

The motion in opposition to law enforcement officials, alternatively, continues to be unlikely because the woodland division claimed that they might now not document a document in opposition to for the violation of Wildlife Protection Act, as the bottom was discovered to be positioned out of doors the ‘woodland limits’. The incident had unfolded on January 20 at an open flooring, where the law enforcement officials fired a variety of guns, including pump motion weapons, as part of improving their riot-control response abilities. Alwar SP Rajiv Pachar had mentioned it was a “silent apply” and claimed that no pictures had been fired. Local citizens, alternatively, contested the police model. One of the villagers had secretly shot a video to expose the police motion.

“Though the bottom is not below woodland limits, the CTH’s boundary is indeed positioned as regards to the bottom. And the police will have to now not have carried out such an workout in a delicate zone, where different actions like construction are banned,” the woodland legitimate mentioned. When contacted, DFO Hemant Singh Shekhawat mentioned that Alwar police have been requested to carry out an inner probe, at the same time as woodland division seems into the subject. Interestingly, officers are clueless if the bottom is a central authority land or a personal belongings. The officers mentioned they are checking revenue information to find the unique holder of the land.
