KARACHI: The Sindh Wildlife Department foiled a bid to smuggle four deer from Umerkot to Karachi, arresting four persons in a raid in Tando Jam, Hyderabad. Deputy Conservator Wajid Ali Shaikh said that they received a tip-off regarding a car transporting the deer in its trunk.

He identified the arrested men as Qurban Ali Rahimo, Abdul Majeed Rahimo, Rafiq Rahimo and Abdul Ghani Rahimo. “When I was a field officer in the wildlife, I caught Qurban Ali smuggling meat of deer. He had paid Rs100,000 fine for that offence,” recalled Shaikh.

He informed that an FIR has been lodged against the four men at Hussainabad Police Station and they will be produced in court for remand on Monday.
