In an unusual order, a court today asked a man accused of poaching to fill water tanks kept for animals for a month as a condition for releasing him on bail. Selvaraj (35) was arrested on February 20 near Annur in the rural limits for possessing venison and was lodged in the Central Jail here after being produced before Mettupalayam judicial magistrate Sureshkumar. When the bail plea came up for hearing, the magistrate granted him bail with a condition that he has to fill the water tanks for one month. In another unique condition, a court in Ariyalur had yesterday asked an accused who sought bail to remove 100 'Seema Karuvelam' (prosopis) trees considered harmful to the eco-system.
