New Delhi, Apr 18 (UNI) Police have arrested a 60-year-old man for allegedly trying to sell animal parts, banned under the Wildlife Act, from Dilshad Garden area of North-East Delhi.

Preetam Singh was arrested from the Dilshad Garden flyover last night while he was selling nails of a lion and owls paw to a Peoples For Animals (PFA) activist, according to sources.

However, two of his associates managed to escape the scene.

Singh, posing as a 'sadhu', had asked the activist to wear the 'nails' as his stars were not favourable.

Meanwhile, police today carried out raids at several places to nab the other two accused.
