Jadeja records statement in lion selfie case

Cricketer Ravindra Jadeja on Friday recorded his official statement in the case where he allegedly flouted rules and took selfies with lions at Wildlife Sanctuary at Gir in Junagadh during his visit a month ago with his wife.“After the matter came to our knowledge a month back, we summoned Jadeja to record his statement with us. He has recorded his statement now. We are in the process of preparing the final report, based on which action will be taken,” said Chief Conservator of Forests (CCF), Junagadh, A.P. Singh.he, however, did not elaborate on the contents of Jadeja’s statement.

The Gujarat Forest Department had last month ordered an inquiry after some of the photos of Jadeja and his wife posing in front of lions went viral on social media platforms.“This was a serious issue, as such acts are a clear violation of Wildlife Protection Act. We will take action based on the report, which will be prepared and submitted within next few days,” Singh said
