LAHORE: In a startling incident, seven invaluable deer have mysteriously ‘disappeared’ from Jallo Park in Lahore, leaving authorities baffled and concerned.
The disappearance was first noticed on Friday night, raising suspicions of foul play.
The spotlight is on four watchmen who are believed to be involved in the theft of these precious deer.
Due to the recent incident at Jallo Park Lahore the number of deer in the park has been reduced to 14 from 21.
As a response, the Director General of Wildlife has taken swift action, suspending the implicated staff members and imposing fines on them pending further investigation.
