Byculla - As a political slugfest begins over the death of a penguin at the Veermata Jijamata Bhosale Garden aka the Mumbai zoo, animal rights bodies have jumped into the fray. On Monday, the Plant and Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) registered a complaint against the zoo authorities. Based on the complaint, a FIR under the provisions of the Wildlife Protection Act – 1960 has been filed in the Byculla police chowky.
