Forest officials in a drive on Friday night detained an alleged poacher with a deer-hunting trap from the forest in Monpura upazila of Bhola.
The arrestee was identified as Rubel Majhi, 25, son of late Jalil Majhi of Dakkhin Rahmanpur village in the upazila.
Acting on a tip-off, a team of the forest department, led by Monpura Forest Range Officer Sumon Das, raided Charpatali forest area and detained Rubel when a group of four poachers were trying to trap a deer on Friday night.
Although three other members of the gang managed to flee the scene, they detained Rubel and seized a 200-metre-long net trap and machete from his possession, Sumon said.
After filing a case with a Bhola court under Wildlife (Conservation and Security) Act 2012 against four people yesterday arrestee Rubel was produced before the court that sent him to jail, he added.
