Erode: Four persons have been arrested
after 60 kg of venison and wild boar meat was seized from
their possession in Sathyamangalam forest range, police said
Monday.

The arrests were made after police found two gunny bags
containing the meat in a car during a routine vehicle check at
Bannari check-post in the district last evening, they said.

A country-made gun and nine bullets were also seized from
the car.

During questioning, the four occupants of the car
allegedly admitted that they had poached the deer and wild
boar near Thalamalai forest area and were taking the meat to
their village in neighbouring Namakkal district.
