Assam: Huge cache of wildlife body parts seized at Kamakhya temple in Guwahati
Sleuths of Wildlife Crime Control Bureau (WCCB) have seized a huge cache of wild animal body parts besides marine animal products in a raid at Kamakhya temple premises in Guwahati.
The haul, believed to be one of the biggest in years, included marine animal products besides musk pods, porcupine spikes and other animal body parts.
The seizures were made during a joint operation launched by the WCCB Guwahati and Guwahati Forest Range office on Wednesday.
Three persons have been arrested in this connection.
Interestingly, this is the first time that marine products have been seized in the Northeast - a region far away from coasts of the country, said a WCCB official.
