Eleven airgun surrender held under the airgun surrender abhiyan
YAZALI, June 28: The villagers of Kuch-Kut village under Yazali segment of Lower Subansiri have surrendered eleven airguns in a function here today.
The surrender abhiyan was initiated by Gram chairperson Likha Yagar in collaboration with the GBs and the Forest department.
However, the airgun owners said since most of them live off of the sale proceeds of their hunts, the government should give them incentives for sustenance.
The villagers requested the forest officials to up their ante against the poachers to protect the wild lives.
