Amar circus animals were registered by the AWBI and CZA but AFFRO RUSSIAN Amar Circus is not recognized by the above said Institutions, where as Bull performance is banned and Bull must be rescued cancelling its registration as performing animals. Semi blind Hippo can't perform nor move from one place to another in sub standard cages, performance by this animal is a violation of the section 3, 11 and 38 of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960 and this abused Hippo needs attention at once its rescue, treatment, care, rehabilitation and retirement after booking the said illegal circus, the UN affiliated OIPA chapter in India demands FIR against AFFRO RUSSIAN Amar Circus for the violation of the IPC section 420, 120-B criminal conspiracy, cheating, misrepresentation and animal cruelty sections 3, 11 and 38 of the PCA Act, 1960. As per report Performance Rules also violated by this circus and the guidelines of CZA as well if we treat it as Amar Circus, no tranquilizer gun along with necessary equipments available with them along with full time veterinarian, no pre transport permit obtained by them as required under section 96 of the Cattle Transport Rules, 1978 amended in 2001, proper and regular reports should be submitted to all concerned by the circus but same was also violated, no iron ankush to handled elephants.
If so called PFA, Nagpur in charge support abused animals be with the circus then her integrity became doubtful and all concerned Govt. agencies are duty bound to rescue and rehabilitate abused animals, stopping unnecessary pain and suffering to the performing animals for joy, entertainment, personnel gain and profit.

      The UN affiliated OIPA in India and PFA Haryana demands immediate rescue of all blind hippo's, elephants, dock tailed dogs, feather chopped birds, abused camels and horses for their rehabilitation. It is further demanded that legislation be introduced for the National heritage animal of India, transportation of elephants and camels from one place to another.
      CZA sub committee inspected the circus on June 25, 2012 and all members signed the report same day but it is submitted to the CZA on July 4, 2012, Why so delay?. Naresh Kadyan fixed dead line for rehabilitation up to July 25, 2012 which was followed by Smt. Maneka Gandhi, Member of Parliament in her letter to CZA. We don't allow CZA to relax, exempt any rules and regulation because exotic species hippo doesn't cover under CZA purview. OIPA in India lodged complaint again on July 6, 2012 for strict legal action against all offenders.
      RTI petition moved for AWBI and CZA for prompt strict legal against all offenders and to rescue

      I am directed to forward herewith a copy of the Inspection Report of Amar Circus for your information. It is informed that one of the Members of the Inspection Committee has informed the Board that during the inspection the word depicted at entrance of the circus and tickets carry the name of “Amar Circus” only. However the stickers and banners displayed in the city on electricity poles exhibit the name “Afro Russian Amar Circus”.
      This is for your information.

    5. Blind Hippo in death row : AWBI and CZA responsible for animal abuse, WHY?

      Social  Activist
      Petition Organizer

      Hippo was found semi blind by a team of Doctor in 2005, report with the Animal Welfare Board of India - AWBI and no action was taken by them to stop performance by this blind hippo in Amar circus to attract public for profit, where as due to negligence of AWBI, another blind hippo was killed by the Jumbo circus. There are no coordination amongst AWBI and CZA, both are ineffective to control the unnecessary pain and sufferings to the animals abused for pride, publicity, personnel gain and profit, political tool as well.
      Now OIPA in India and PFA Haryana demanding immediate ban on Amar circus cancelling its recognition and all performing animals should be forfeited, owners and managers be booked for the violation of the IPC 420, 120-B read with section 3, 11 and 38 of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960 and section 38-H of the Wild Life Protection Act, 1972.
      Tainted official of the AWBI and CZA be charge sheeted for negligence and their integrity needs to be examine.

      Petition Organizer

      The Animal Welfare Board of India - AWBI and Central Zoo Authority of India - CZA alerted by the UN affiliated OIPA in India, to search where is Amar circus?. As per information one AFRO RUSSIAN Amar circus is performing in Nagpur with the permission of District Administration might be after the payment of protection money in donation shape, Bull performance is banned, semi blind hippo regularly performing but both so called guardian enforcement agencies are passing bucks and wasting time instead of lodging FIR against the offenders after rescuing all abused animals.
      OIPA in India demands time frame legal action against all offenders and introduction of fast track courts to try and decide the crime against animals.
      AWBI and CZA officials are paid and duty bound to monitor the unnecessary pain and sufferings to the animals but they failed to do so, toothless the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960 should be replaced and National Commission for Animal Welfare be introduced.
