Three deer were al­legedly killed by poachers in Na­gaur on Sun­day night.

The in­ci­dent took place be­tween the Basni and In­dus vil­lage when vil­lagers heard gun­shots in the nearby fields, the po­lice said. “The vil­lagers rushed to the field and saw three deer car­casses were hung from a tree and two mo­tor­cy­cles,” said Ban­shi Lal, as­sis­tant sub in­spec­tor, Sadar po­lice sta­tion, Na­gaur. The po­lice said the vil­lagers couldn’t pur­sue the mis­cre­ants as it was dark and they man­aged to es­cape.

The po­lice said that pre­lim­i­nary in­ves­ti­ga­tion sug­gests that the an­i­mals were hunted for their meat. “A case has been regis­tered un­der the wildlife pro­tec­tion act and arms act and fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion on in the case,” said the ASI.
