New Delhi: In what could be called as a case of flawed justice, Sansar Chand, the notorious poacher and wildlife trader could walk free and be out of the black holes soon. A Delhi court today refused to slap a stringent anti-organized crime law against him, which would have been the stumbling block in him getting the bail.
Two hundred and fifty tigers, 2,000 leopards, 5,000 otters, 20,000 wild cats, 20,000 wild foxes and still counting. That’s the unbelievable and shocking number of wild animals that law enforcers have been able to count as falling prey to the deadly trade plied by Sansar Chand.
Chand has been in jail since 2005, but due to faulty investigation, inconclusive evidences and his ability to fool the cops, he could soon be walking free.
Chand argued against being charged under the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) on technical grounds, that only those with two past convictions can be charged under the law. Chand had already secured bail in other cases under the Wildlife Act in Delhi.
