P.C. Sorcar, the magician, in the dock

Magician P.C. Sorcar, who has in the past made the Taj Mahal disappear and a running train vanish without a trace, has now been charged for not registering a few birds he used during the magic shows he held to enthral the city recently.
The Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) has booked the case under the Performing Animals Act.
Mr Dowlath Khan, chief inspector, SPCA, said a case was booked on the magic show organisers after a complaint was a filed from an Animal Welfare Board of India official alleging that the birds were not registered and maintained.
A search was conducted in Kalaivanar Arangam, the venue where the magic show was held. Metropolitan magistrate Murugesan, who heard the case, directed the organisers to register the birds and fined the organisers.

    The SPCA is doing such things to gain popularity by disturbing the Popular peoples and VIPS. They shut their eyes even when they come to know aboiut the cruelty to animals or birds; is it they doesn’t know about 100ds of animals are transported daily to kerala in lorries even without space for movements and put to stand all the ways for about 24 to 36 hours.
