HYDERABAD: A vernacular newspaper reporter from Nizamabad was arrested on Thursday for possessing deer skin illegally. The accused brought the skin of a male spotted deer to the city to find a buyer for it.

The arrested, Ch Suresh Kumar alias Surender is a native of Gandhari village in Nizamabad district. Through his friend Laxman, a Registered Medical Practitioner in the same village, Suresh came to know that one Shamsher is a hunter and supplies meat. “Shamsher is a hunter who supplies meat of different birds and animals like rabbits and deer,’’ deputy commissioner of police Ch Ramchander said.

Suresh asked Laxman to get a deer skin from Shamsher to sell it in Hyderabad for a good price. More than 20 days back, Shamsher killed a deer in the forests of Hanumanjipet of Banswada mandal and handed over the skin to Laxman after selling away the meat.
