The programme to reintroduce the cheetah in India has been taken a step further with the Madhya Pradesh government seeking Customs clearance for the first of 13 animals to be brought from Namibia.

The project is already running behind schedule and formalities like getting an import licence and meeting conditions under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora are still to be completed. The wildlife department said it would soon get clearance but would take some more months to bring the animal to Kuno Palpur sanctuary.
