He said in the petition that he had applied in 2019 to set up a small wildlife park with 79 species of animals, including leopards and bears, on 250 acres and had only been granted permission until August 2023, when 1,000 crocodiles would be housed in a 7,300-square-meter space that could house only 56 crocodiles.
Permission to relocate was declared illegal and my order was revoked. Vishwanathan has made the request in the petition. The petition also seeks an order directing the CBI or the Special Investigation Commission to inquire into the matter.
The petition came up for hearing in a session comprising Chief Justice Munishwar Nath Bandari and Justice N. Mala. The judges then adjourned the case, ordering the Tamil Nadu State Wildlife Conservator, the Central Wildlife Commission, the Greens Wildlife Rescue Center in Gujarat, and the Mamallapuram Crocodile Farm Management to file a reply within three weeks.
