Man arrested for hunting deer, 9 carcasses found in well

Jaipur: Carcasses of nine deer were today found inside a well at Dulmera in Bakaner district and a person has been arrested in this regard, police said.

On being informed that Kailash Bawri (35) had killed a deer last night, forest officials raided his residence and arrested him, a police official said, adding a live deer was recovered from his possession.

Following interrogation, the accused led officials to the empty 15-feet deep well where carcasses of the nine deer were found, SHO of Lunkaransar Police Station, Shrawan Das Sant, told PTI.
