After he was detained, Saqlain told the police that the lioness was ill so he was taking her for a medical check-up. The animal owner said he had all the relevant documents required to keep a wild animal as a domestic one. Upon checking the documents, the cops found that his license was expired, hence, action will be initiated against him.

According to a Hindustan Times report, police said the permit issued to Jawaid by the wildlife department of Sindh province for run a “private mini zoo” had expired in June last year.
