Ace golfer and ex-husband of Chitrangda Singh, Jyoti Randhawa has been arrested for poaching in the Dudhwa Tiger Reserve protected area in Uttar Pradesh. Reports state that a rifle (A-22), a vehicle, wild boar skin, binoculars and other hunting equipments were recovered from Randhawa.

An HT report states that the District Forest Officer of Katerniaghat interrogated Randhawa. Another national-level shooter Mahesh Virajdar was also arrested. “Jyoti Singh Randhawa and Mahesh Virajdar (who accompanied him) have been arrested in a poaching case in Motipur range of Katerniaghat.
