A court in Bodoland, western Assam has set a precedent by handing out the maximum punishment to five poachers for killing birds and lesser animals such as mongoose. It warrants seven years in prison, extendable to 10 years, and a minimum fine of ₹ 50,000. The five persons were sentenced for poaching deer, mongoose, hare, and birds inside the Manas National Park on June 17. Additional sessions judge at Bijni, N.U. Ahmed said that poaching has made some species extinct and called for protecting wild animals. He expressed the hope that offenders would understand the power of wildlife laws.
