The plea is filed by Biju Janata Dal (BJD) member of parliament (MP) against the brutal killing of wild animals. Yesterday, the Supreme Court held that the said issue required to be looked in terms of a solution.
The bench comprising of Chief Justice SA Bobde with Justice AS Bopanna and Justice V Ramasubramanian pondered over the issue to ask if mere directive against the culling of these animals is enough to address the issues.
The apex court held that the conflict between the man-animal can be held with different method such as rubber bullets instead of killing them for destroying the crops.
It has issued notice to States on the issue to grant permission to kill large number of Nilgais to stop the destruction of the crops.
