Lockdown does not mean its game day for poachers. Few poachers thought that the lockdown would keep officials indoors giving them opportunity to hunt.

 Two poachers were caught on videos entering and roaming around the forest area to hunt wild animals.

 The two poachers entered Jaipura Doddi in Ragihalli village in Bannerghatta forest limits. While one with a light fixed to his head marches ahead, clearing the way, the other poacher holding a gun follows.

 Deputy conservator of forests Prashant said, a case has been registered and teams have started a search operation at Ragihalli and Shivanahalli village which are located in Bannerghatta National Park limits.
