After the Kerala elephant case, 12 arrested for killing a jackal in Tamil Nadu using country-made explosives

The accused were spotted by a police constable from Jeeyapuram station drinking tea near Mekkudi village and carrying a bag with the carcass stuffed in it.

Twelve Narikuravars, members of a tribal community from Tamil Nadu, were reportedly arrested on Monday for killing a jackal using country-made explosives near Jeeyapuram in Tiruchy. The miscreants had stuffed the bomb inside a piece of meat that was used to lure the animal. Upon eating, the bomb exploded and ripped the jaws of the jackal.

Miscreants stuff carcass in a bag

According to a senior forest department official, the accused had gone to a village to harvest honey. However, on spotting a jackal, they hunted the animal for its teeth and meat using country-made bombs. The accused were spotted by a police constable from Jeeyapuram station drinking tea near Mekkudi village and carrying a bag with the carcass stuffed in it. On suspecting something uncanny in their bag, the cop inquired and discovered the dead body of the animal. Under the Wildlife Protection Act of 1972, the jackal has been classified as a Schedule-I animal.

12 Accused arrested

The police constable then informed the Trichy forest department officials who then arrested the miscreants. The Forest Department also investigated as to how the accused had got hold of the country bombs. The Deputy Superintendent of Police (Jeeyapuram) C Kokila had confined the chain of events leading to their arrest. The miscreants who belong to the Pulankudi Colony near Thiruverumbur have been identified as Raju, Ramraj, Saravanan, Yesudas, Sarathkumar, Devadas, Pandian, Vijayakumar, Sathyamoorthy, Sarathkumar, Rajamanikam, Raju, and Patampillai.
