Rameswaram: Two people were arrested on Thursday for allegedly killing crowsand selling their meat to chicken stalls here, forest officials said. Around 150 dead birds were seized from them, they said. The killing of crows came to light when pilgrims at the temple town noticed the birds dying after feeding on the rice offered by them in memory of their forefathers and alerted the officials.

The officials conducted an enquiry and found that the birds died after consuming liquor-laced food offered by the poachers, who sold their meat to chicken stalls.

These stalls mix the crow meat with that of chicken before selling it to roadside eateries, they added.
