<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A car rally was taken out in the city today to raise the issue of camels being smuggled from India to neighbouring countries for slaughtering. The rallyists including people from different walks of life passed from state houses of West Bengal, Bihar and Rajasthan, for prompting local governments to act against smuggling of camels to Bangladesh and Pakistan, said Nikita Anand, spokesperson of the organiser Dhyan Foundation. Camels, indispensable to economic life of locals in Rajasthan and Kutch, are fast disappearing and have been declared as an endangered species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN), she said. “Laws are openly being flouted as the camels are illegally trafficked for skin and meat to Bangladesh and Pakistan,” she said.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
