A month after French filmmakers were found to have intruded into the protected Jarawa tribal reserve, the Andaman and Nicobar administration has decided to upgrade surveillance system in the area.
A Parliamentary Standing Committee has favoured bringing of Jarawas into
the mainstream with minimum damage to their cultural heritage.
Andaman and Nicobar Island police
have identified one of its personnel who was allegedly involved in the controversial `human safari` episode.
The Andaman spokesperson said there was a "concerted effort" by vested interests to pressurise the Govt for the closure of the Andaman Trunk Road.
The lawmakers are concern over reports that tourists were treating the Jarawa tribe like attractions in a `human safari park`.
The Andaman & Nicobar Police said action will be taken against tour operators
offering trips to show members of the Jarawa tribe.
A British newspaper has released an amateur video footage shot in the Andaman Islands which shows tribal women, naked waist up, dancing for tourists.
