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.
AWBI Chairman and Asst Secretary have to explain their position for not performing their official duties, why they are allowing Bull performance, Camel and Elephant cruel transportation by the Circuses and blind hippo performance. Elephants being an Indian heritage animal needs rules and regulation with out any further delay. We appreciate Shri Naresh Kadyan movements for animal rights and their welfare in India, his tireless services as well.
Complaint No. 13371557473003 dated 16-5-2012 has been lodged with the Sadar Police station, Nagpur.
PRSEC/E/2012/08096 and MOEAF/E/2012/00169 dated June 8, 2012 lodged by Naresh Kadyan and we want time frame legal action against all abusers and rescue of abused animals along with the cancellation of performance permission in Nagpur, inquiry about protection money as well, which was paid to the District Administration by the accused AFFRO RUSSIAN Amar Circus.
AWBI and CZA should lodge FIR against unregistered AFFRO RUSSIAN Amar circus performing with the Amar circus animals for the violation of IPC 420, 120-B read with the section 38-H of the Wild Life Protection Act, 1972 and section 3, 11 and 38 of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960 instead of applying delay tactics to provide safe passage to the offenders as applied in Jumbo circus.
Complaint No. 13391319463074 dated June 8, 2012 again lodged with the Sadar Police Station, Nagpur. Ban illegal circus performance and movement at once during investigation.
A petition under RTI Act, 2005 have been moved to know the legal action taken by the enforcement agencies and how blind hippo was regularly abused by the Amar circus since 2005 onwards till date, where as this matter was exposed by the OIPA representative in India Naresh Kadyan during his struggle for another blind hippo in Jumbo circus but AWBI always in deep sleep and there are no co-ordination amongst AWBI and CZA? Hippo was killed but there was eye wash and later ban was revoked with out any punishment, if this Amar circus blind hippo illegally performing in unregistered AFFRO RUSSIAN Amar Circus be harmed then AWBI Chairman will be responsible in person along with the District Collector, Nagpur for granting permission to a illegal circus company, when AFFRO RUSSIAN Amar circus isn't registered or recognized by the AWBI and CZA then WHY performances allowed not stopped till today, AWBI ordered for inspection of Amar Circus......... where is Amar Circus and performing Bull???????
The AWBI should promote coordination amongst people working tirelessly for animal rights and their welfare like Naresh / Abhishek and Sukanya Kadyan, make public the list of performing animals registered along with the details of co-opted members, their contributions towards animals and it must flashed on AWBI websites, pranimitra / jeevdaya prizes be given on the eve of golden jubilee celebrations.
Inspection of AFRO RUSSIAN Amar circus in Nagpur conducted on June 9, 2012 on the basis of Naresh Kadyan complaint, HIPPO left eye vision found blind zero, right eye effected as well. So OIPA in India demands immediate rescue of this sick hippo, rehabilitation as well after cancelling registration as performing animals, tainted animal abusers circus be booked, its AWBI / CZA recognition be withdrawn banning performing animal movement from Nagpur till their rehabilitation. Why Inspection report was with held on June 9, 2012 till June 11?

Open Notice for Hunger Strike against animal abuse in India:
AWBI may kindly be directed to re-examine all performing animals registration since beginning to till date and rescue all abused animals cancelling their registration, placed complete information on its website along with the list of co-opted members, their experience and performance as well in public interest and transparency.
1. All Hippo's registration may kindly be cancelled and rescue, rehabilitate them up to July 25, 2012.
2. All Elephants as performing animals registration may kindly be cancelled being an National Heritage animal of India, introduce legislation, rules and regulation for their welfare.
3. All docked tail, feather chopped birds registration may kindly be canceled and rescue, rehabilitate them up to July 25, 2012.
4. All Camels registration may kindly be canceled as performing animals because they are abused by their owners during transportation, their leg tied and traveled in sitting position, there are no rules and regulation framed by the Central / State Govt. : How to transport Camels and Elephant by foot, road, truck, train or ship?.
5. Retirements of performing animals and birds be fixed, their rehabilitation policy may kindly be introduced.
6. All unwanted performing animals needs attention because AWBI and CZA never examine the justification, for example EMU, Goat and Pelican etc are not trained nor they performed but they are allowed for profit, registered as performing animal / bird.
7. Punish all Circuses and tainted AWBI - CZA officials as well, if they found guilty:
A. Strict compliance of PCA Act, 1960 / WP Act, 1972 and all rules made under be looked into.
B. Pre transport permit as required u/s 96 be implemented and monitored regularly.
C. How and why two branches of JUMBO Circus allowed? Blind Hippo was badly abused by them till his death, legislation was violated and same was proved. AWBI exercised and at last revoked ban on Jumbo circus with out any punishment?
D. When in 2005 Hippo of Amar circus was found blind and unfit to perform and as per attached report information was with the AWBI then why Hippo was allowed to perform by the AWBI since long?
E. On June 9, 2012 AFRO RUSSIAN Amar Circus at Nagpur was inspected, Amar circus papers were examined, why?, please find attached here with the advertisement of Danik Bhaskar and other publicity material, which are self explanatory, Hippo was found blind but no action, still performance are going on, Bull is missing, no pre transport permit was found etc., Why inspection report with held till June 11, 2012?
F. Expedite the Animal Welfare Act, 2011 / WP Act. / Rules for Dog breeders / Pet Shop / Fish Aquarium and Ban of Peacock feathers trade.
So the UN affiliated OIPA in India announced that if AWBI and CZA failed to perform their official duties as defined above then OIPA chapter in India will sit on HUNGER STRIKE on July, 25, 2012 with ANNA HAZARE TEAM.
Please save our animals from unnecessary pain and sufferings. If anything happened to blind Hippo of Amar circus then the Chairman, AWBI and Member Secretary, CZA will be responsible in person.

Subject: FIR against Shri Chandrakant P Gadge and others for the violation of the Wild Life Protection Act, 1972 read with the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960 / IPC 420, 120-B.

Sir,

The Animal Welfare Board of India direct the District Collector, Nagpur to investigate the matter on the complaint lodged by the founder Chairman, PFA Haryana Naresh Kadyan, representative of the UN affiliated OIPA in India against the AFRO RUSSIAN Amar Circus performing in Nagpur. As per AWBI directions, a team was constituted and inspection was made on June 9, 2012: As per reports only one female elephant with out ownership and female hippo was found blind, no full time Veterinarian appointed, no tranquilizer gun with other necessary equipment was reported along with the micro chipping to the elephants, where were the rest of three elephants, report is silent on this issue, no pre transport permit as required under section 96 of the Cattle Transport Rules, 1978 amended in 2001 was obtained by the AFRO RUSSIAN Amar Circus, it is confirmed that publicity materials and advertisement in Danik Bhaskar was given under above mentioned name by this circus instead of Amar Circus. The female hippo is blind and this animal can’t perform, where as after inspection again the tainted circus issued fresh advertisement, which was published in Danik Bhaskar June 16, 2012 BLIND HIPPO performance was shown and AFRO RUSSIAN words were deleted. AWBI issued performing animal registration for the following animal and birds in the name of Mr. Vickey Raj on 23-9-2004:

Elephant – 4, Horses – 6, Dogs – 12, Hippo – 1, Parrots – 10, Camels – 4, Bull – 1, where as 3 - Elephants, 1- Bull, 1- Camel are missing and present circus owner are Mr. Chandrakant P Gadge / Neeraj C Gadge, Plot No. 151, Narendranagar, Nagpur. It is confirmed that sale purchase was taken place with out the consent of the AWBI / CZA and elephant can’t be traded at all, which is an offense under the law of the land, female elephant doesn’t belongs to Mr. Chandrakant P Gadge and others, they are having this female elephant in their illegal possession, where as the proof of burden on the accused instead of prosecution for the violation of the Wild Life Protection Act, 1972. No scheduled one wild animal elephant was declared by them as required under the Declaration of Wild Life Stock Rules, 2003.

Camels are being shifted from one place to another for profit in goods transport vehicles in sitting leg tied position and animal travel under very heavy stress, pain and injury, where as shifting camels and elephants in a goods transport vehicle is also an offense under the Motor Vehicle legislations. Blind female Hippo was also transported in sub standard cages, violated the defined specifications under law.

It would be pertinent to mention here that inbreeding is banned under the Recognition of Zoo Rules but inbreeding was regularly on, where as the captive elephants should be rescued from the Zoo, as per the Central Zoo Authority of India and circuses covered under the definition of Zoo.

Hence you are humbly requested to lodge an FIR against all offenders, such as the owners of the circus, promoter and traders for the violation of the:

1. Section 3, 11 and 38 of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960.

2. Section 38-H, 39, 40, 43, 44, 49, 51 and 63 of the Wild Life Protection Act, 1972.

3. IPC 420, 120-B.

4. The Performing Animals (Registration) Rules, 2001.

5. The Declaration of Wild Life Stock Rules, 2003.

6. The Cattle Transport Rules, 1978 amended in 2001.

It is further requested to:

1. Restrict the performance of all abused performing animals.

2. Restrict the movement of all abused performing animals from Nagpur.

3. Confiscate the blind female hippo for her rehabilitation, treatment, care and shelter.

4. Confiscate the unregistered, unwanted animals and birds from circus custody.

5. The record of circus is checked, such as sales, entertainment tax payment and donation paid.

6. The Captive Elephant be confiscated and rehabilitated as per CZA guidelines.

7. Inspection report of AWBI and CZA be placed on public domain.
