New Delhi, Jul 7 (UNI) In a major haul, the Wildlife Crime Bureau today seized more than 15 kg of ''fresh tiger bones'' from a village near neighbouring Gurgaon.

A senior official of the Wildlife Crime Bureau told UNI that fresh tiger bones, between 15 and 20 kg, were seized during raids at a poacher's dwelling in a Gurgaon village in Haryana this afternoon.

''The raids were conducted following a tip-off and the seizures were startling as they were fresh tiger bones.'' Several gunny bags of traps were also seized during the raids, said the official.

''They have been sent for forensic examination and the Wildlife Institute of India too has been intimated about the incident,'' the official added.

The seizure proved that poaching of tigers still continued despite best of efforts by the government and parties concerned.
