Sheopur: In a world-level event marking his 72nd birthday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday formally released three Namibian cheetahs in this district’s Kuno National Park – a historic moment indeed for which preparations were underway for weeks.
This is the maiden intercontinental translocation project of its kind and the carnivore’s presence in India marks the conclusion of a seven-decade-long hiatus. Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan was among the dignitaries who graced the occasion.
A total eight animals were brought from Africa to Gwalior by plane and thence to Kuno by an Army aircraft.(UNI)
