“In addition to the cases of confirmed poaching, we are investigating 14 other deaths that too seem to have been caused by poaching,” said a National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) officer on the condition of anonymity. The officer added that the increasing number of tiger deaths is a matter of grave concern and if the rate of poaching continues unabated, the number may surpass the 2012 figure of 71 tiger deaths.
So my question is when Government of India constituted a statutory body, the Wildlife Crime Control Bureau on 6th June 2007, by amending the Wildlife (Protection) Act, 1972, a special Act to protect the wildlife in the country. The bureau that would complement the efforts of the state governments, primary enforcers of the Wildlife (Protection) Act, 1972 and other enforcement agencies of the country. What Role is it playing????
