Forest officials late on Sunday night detained seven persons from Valar village and nearby areas of Talaja taluka in connection with the killing of a lion. Forest officials said that they have detained seven persons and are interrogating them. The lion carcass was found from village's gauchar land on Friday. Forest officials suspected that the animal may have been electrocuted by an electrical fence put up by farmers to keep animals away.
Senior forest officials maintained that they are awaiting the forensic report to ascertain the actual cause of death.
