Officials of the Wildlife Crime Control Unit or WCCU have alleged a breach of the law in the movie ‘Hawa’. A team of four from the unit watched the movie on Thursday after wildlife conservationists raised allegations that the Wildlife Act has been breached in it. Mejbaur Rahman Sumon, the director of the film, claimed no animal was harmed in the movie. Abdullah Al Sadiq, another member of the WCCU team, said the Wildlife (Preservation) Act clearly states that it will be an offence under the law if someone aids a crime mentioned in it. Rathindra Kumar Biswas, an official of WCCU, said filmmakers need the Forest Department’s permission for using wildlife for the sake of the story.
