Levies arrested on Monday seven Qatari nationals for poaching precious birds in Balochistan’s Nushki district, officials said.

The arrested foreigners neither had a license nor a no-objection certificate, according to Nushki Deputy Commissioner Abdur Razzak Sasoli.

They were handed over to the Forest and Wildlife Department and shifted to Nushki Circuit House, according to a Wildlife Department official.

The arrestees also include members of the Qatari royal family.

Meanwhile, a Qatari national submitted a challan worth $131,000 for hunting houbara bustards and falcons.

The man deposited $100,000 for hunting houbara bustards and $31,000 for hunting falcons.

The Balochistan government has set a fee of $100,000 for hunting of a hundred houbara bustards.

Hunting a falcon costs $1,000.
