Guwahati (Assam), Mar 20 (ANI): Custom officials in Assam’s Guwahati apprehended a smuggler red-handed while he was looking to make sale on a leopard’s skin and bones. The officials seized a 7.7-feet-long leopard skin along with five kilograms of bones. Acting on a tip-off, the officials intercepted the accused, who had just reached Guwahati to reach out to their customers, and brought one of the accused to book, while the other, a Bhutanese national, managed to give the cops a slip, said a Custom Officer. Leopard skin and bones are often smuggled to China and other South Asian countries where the skin is used as a decorative item and bones are used for medicinal purposes.
