Peacock feathers seized in Chennai

Tamil Nadu forest officials arrested three persons in Chennai on 25 June 2012 for selling peacock feathers. It is interested to know under which power forest dept. has done this action. Peacock poaching is prohibited but selling of shed feathers are not prohibited under Wildlife Protection Act 1972. Interestingly there is no mechanism in place to find out feathers selling in markets are come from poached birds or shed feathers.
