Remaining 2 accused in poaching case surrender

June 23, 2005 19:47 IST

The remaining two accused in the endangered black buck hunting case, allegedly involving former cricket captain Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, also surrendered at a local court in Jhajhar on Thursday.

Daya Suddin and Karam Singh, whose names also figure in the first information report along with six other accused, surrendered in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate Sudhir Jiwan, who remanded them to police custody for a day.

With the surrender of the two, all the eight accused in the case have given themselves up.

Madan Singh was the only accused who was arrested by police early in June.

Six of the accused, including Pataudi, are now out on bail.

Accused Dayal Singh, who had surrendered on Wednesday, had filed a bail plea, which will come up for hearing in the local court on Friday.

Pataudi and seven others were booked by the Haryana police under various sections of the Wildlife Protection Act for killing a black buck, an endangered species near a wildlife sanctuary in Jhajhar on June 3.

An FIR was registered against them two days later. If found guilty they face a jail term of up to seven years and a fine of Rs 25,000.
