A unique scene took place in a Delhi court on Wednesday when 13 parrots were put in a cage. You must be wondering if parrots have committed a crime. However, let us say that there is nothing like this. In fact, parrots had to come to court because of the actions of an Uzbek citizen. The Uzbek, named Rakhmatjonov, was caught by the CISF at Indira Gandhi International Airport when he was trying to smuggle his country of parrots in shoe boxes.
All these live parrots were recovered from him in several compartments. According to the law, property related to a case is required to be produced in court. So these parrots had to be produced in court. Later on the orders of the court, these were handed over to the officials of Okhla Bird Century for maintenance.
The Customs Department has registered a case against the accused Uzbek citizen under the Wildlife Act. Accordingly, the export of parrots from India is prohibited. That is, they are prohibited from being taken out.
The accused Uzbek citizen pleaded for bail, but the court refused to grant him relief and sent him to judicial custody till 30 October.
During the CISF interrogation, he told that he had bought these parrots from a vendor in Old Delhi. There is a huge demand for parrots in his country, so he was trying to smuggle them.
