WWF and Wild Life Department Sindh unfoiled the attempt to smuggle 780 tortoises of a rare breed from a foreign gang. They have been released in the Kalar lake adjacent of river Indus.
These tortoises were illegally captured from the different areas of the Sindh with the intention to smuggle outside Pakistan. The total cost of this rare breed is calculated around 8 crore rupees.
Tortoises confiscated by the department were released in the lake on the order of the court which will not only flourish in strength but also remove the pollution in the river.
