The Member Secretary,

Subject: Appeal under RTI Act, 2005.


Kindly refer to my application dated July 6, 2012 under the RTI Act, 2005 and half backed reply on
September 14, 2012, where as interim reply was given on the same day about Amar circus inspection
but action taken report / orders issued to recue the abused female elephant kept illegally by Amar
circus along with abused blind Hippo was not yet supplied to me, point wise complete reports from 1-
7 awaited.

It would be pertinent to mention here that CZA issued orders to rescue all elephants from the Zoo’s
for further rehabilitation, where as circuses are also covered under Zoo then why circuses are allowed
to abuse elephants with our strict compliance of the section 38-H of the Wild Life Protection Act, 1972
because these circuses don’t have tranquilizer guns along with full time veterinarian and these
elephants are being badly abused during performance with iron ankush, transportation as well from
one place to another.

Performing bears are reported 268 with Agra where as more than 600 dancing bears were rescued
from the Kalandars, where are the rest of performing bears?, please supply me the complete
information about all rescued performing bears and what legal action has been taken by the
concerned Chief Wild Life Warden during their rescue from the Kalandars and why these NGO’s are
allowed to keep rescued performing bears with out any legal action against the Kalanders?. Please
supply me the complete list of dancing bear rescued along with the sex of bear, date and place of
rescue, present status of bear and from whom bear was rescued by whom?. Why blind hippos are
allowed to perform along with elephants with out strict compliance of the legislation’s concerned?
