WILDLIFE BODY SEEKS NIA PROBE INTO AVNI'S KILLING

Friday, 09 November 2018 | PNS | Mumbai

The clamour for fixing the responsibility for the elimination of  “Avni” intensified on Thursday, with environmentalists writing to Prime Minister Narendra Modi demanding an “impartial” inquiry into the tigress’ killing by the National Investigation Agency (NIA).

A wildlife-centric site, natureconnect.com has written to Modi demanding a probe by the NIA, while the NGO, Resqink Association for Wildlife Welfare (RAWW) has sought a CBI probe into the tigress’ killing on November 2.

Natureconnect’s founder B. N. Kumar said that his organisation looked forward to the Prime Minister, being the Chairman of National Board for Wildlife, ordering an  “impartial” investigation by NIA to  unearth facts about Avni’s killing in view of that in her case, the guidelines of National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) had been allegedly flouted.

Satpuda Foundation’s Kishor Rithe said the investigations must go into the man-animal conflicts prevailing in the Yavatmal forests in view of the fact 13 human lives were lost in the region during the last two years.

Karnataka-based veterinarian Prayag H. S. said Avni’s two orphaned 10-month cubs must be secured immediately. He also said after going through the findings oif the tigress' autopsy report, he would move the Supreme Court.
