Jaisalmer, Mar 7 (UNI) Almost a dozen peacocks have died under mysterious circumstances in Swamiji Ki Dhani area in Fatehgarh Sub-division of this district during the past four to five days.
SHO of the Phalsund police station R S Rajpurohit, who visited the hamlet, said carcass and remains of the National birds were scattered in a stretch of two to three kms.
