Dudhwa Tiger Reserve and Sashastra Seema Bal have joined hands to provide security to Dudhwa forests and its rich wildlife.

“A consensus was reached among all security agencies including SSB on the border and the Dudhwa field staff to strengthen the patrolling in and around Dudhwa to check forest and wildlife crimes,” DTR Field Director Ramesh Kumar Pandey said.

Mr. Pandey along with Deputy Director Mahavir Kaujlagi on Saturday held a meeting with the SSB, central and local intelligence officers, customs and excise officials, Special Tiger Protection Force and the reserve’s field staff to discuss the issues involving safety of Dudhwa forests and its wildlife.

“It was agreed that joint long route patrolling comprising SSB, STPF and DTR field staff would be held at regular intervals,” he said adding that first such long route patrolling is proposed to be launched on December 22.

Mr. Pandey said stress was also laid on intelligence and information sharing among various security agencies about activities of wildlife and forest criminals.

Sharing his interaction with the SSB officials, Mr. Pandey said “a mechanism to establish SSB border outpost level communication and information sharing was resolved to be developed to strengthen the safety of Dudhwa.”
