retired Indian Army personnel Satish s/o Shri Chander Singh and Danik Bhaskar reporter confirmed the
incident. As per information gathered, a monkey was sitting on the jamun tree with in the premises of
Satish and wild animal was shot down by his gun, violating the Arms Act.
4. No doubt, Satish might be harassed by this monkey but it does not mean to shoot a scheduled wild
animal by a weapon because this act was not in self defense.
The State Board for Wildlife discussed the matter of excluding common monkey from the protection
cover of the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972 because these monkey, who born and brought up in the
human habitat, don’t have wild character but looking like a wild monkey, as per their shape and size, the
Chief Wildlife Warden, Haryana directed their field functionaries to dislocate the monkey from the
human habitat, adopting scientific procedures but concerned officials failed to perform their official
duties, constitutional duties as well.
The injured monkey was shifted to Rohtak for further treatment, on the information of Rajesh Councillor
but monkey died on the way to Hissar, for further treatment.
Hence, OIPA and PFA Haryana demands:
