Mysuru: Finally, the Forest sleuths have solved the mystery behind the chopping off Prince’s snout.
Prince was found dead with chopped off snout and missing canines on Apr. 2 at Kundkere Range in Bandipur.
The Forest sleuths, based on a tip-off, arrested Soma, 35 and Bomma, 45, both residents of Cheluvarayanapura, a village adjoining Bandipur Forest Area.
According to Department sources, both Soma and Bomma grazed their cows at Kundkere Forest Range and on Mar. 31, they found the carcass.
