Madnapur village is located only four kms from Gondmohadi. Previous investigations had established that the Baheliya poachers had some local help to track the location and movement of tigers in the area.
Recovery of the jaw trap has made Atram prime suspect in the tiger poaching case. Moreover, Atram has also reportedly confessed of poaching herbivores in the area in the past. Other two accused Hanvate and Dadmal, who are already in magisterial custody, have not been charged with tiger poaching.
