Brand-Perry case hearing on Nov 2

JAIPUR: The petition filed by the Ranthambore Park Bachao Samiti alleging violation of wildlife, environment and civic laws by the forest and district administration officials during the celebrity wedding of Russell Brand and Katy Perry was heard by the chief judicial magistrate\'s court at Sawai Madhopur on Saturday.

The court, however, reserved its decision on the petitionin which the star couple and their friends too have been named as co-accused till November 2.

The samiti\'s president and local lawyer, Akshay Sharma filed the petition charging the couple of breaking rules against loud music after 10 pm, smoking, consuming liquor and carrying firearms in the forest area, disturbing endangered animals, changing movement routes assigned by the forest authorities and getting into a scuffle with the paparazzi inside the park and thereby risking human lives in the tigers reserve.

The forest officials, on the other hand, were accused of driving the tigers from their territories to the areas close to where the celebrities were staying so that the latter could spot the big cats easily. The petitioner alleged that this act of the forest officials was one of the main reasons behind the territorial fights among the reserve\'s tigers.

A territorial fight between tigers T-36 and T-42 had led to the death of the former just days before the couple\'s marriage. Brand and Perry were married at a resort near the Ranthambore national park on October 23.
