Nine arrested near Coimbatore for possession of skins of a Tiger and five Leopards

An undercover officer from the Forest Department was shown the skins of a Tiger and five leopards (including a black panther) in Pollachi, by a man named Jailani who demanded five crores. The officer was from a team of plainclothes Forest department officials, who were acting on a tip off. After the skin traders ultimately agreed to sell all the skins for a sum of one crore, the officer told them he had to consult with his friends, after which he informed the waiting officials nearby. Nine persons, including a woman named Parameswari in whose house the incident took place, were booked under Section Nine of the Wildlife Protection Act and arrested.
