FIR Filed Against Assam CM for Violation of Wildlife Protection Act

Guwahati: The villagers living close to Kaziranga National Park have filed a FIR against Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, Jayanta Mallabaruah, and Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev for allegedly violating the Wildlife Protection Act of 1972.

Huneswar Narah and Pradip Pegu filed the FIR on Sunday at the Bokakhat Police Station on behalf of the residents who live close to the national park.

The FIR claims that the vehicle safari taken by the Sadhguru and the chief minister on Saturday night was a clear violation of the Wildlife Protection Act since no tourist is permitted to enter the national park after 4:30 pm.

The FIR read, “Law is same for all. We therefore request the police to take action against all people involved in this act or either provide an apology for the same. We hope that justice would be provided to us.”

The locals have also claimed that the decision to proclaim the national park’s reopening to visitors was allegedly made on the spur of the moment.

The three-day Chintan Shivir held at the Kaziranga Borgos Resort included the Sadhguru’s visit to the national park.
