Outside cricket, Ravindra Jadeja is known for doing wrong things at wrong places. This time he attracted the media as well as the forest department by posting pictures with lions behind him. The photos went viral for a short period of time but that was enough to put the Indian cricketer in trouble.
Few days back the forest department of Gir announced the rule about not getting too close to the wild animals just to take selfies. According to them, it is really dangerous to get that close to the wild animals by putting lives at risk.
Ravindra Jadeja went to lion safari with his wife Riva at Sasan Gir in Junagadh district but some of the forrest officials claimed that both Jadeja and his wife got down from the safari vehicle and clicked photographs with a pride of lions, which is against the rules of forrest department.
GNPS also known as Gir National Park and Sanctuary is a protected forest area and it is really dangerous to get down from the vehicle and click photographs with the wild animals while the tourists are inside the jungle. So, the forest department has ordered a inquiry against the Indian star all-rounder.
Some of the forest guards have also clicked sellfies with Ravindra Jadeja inside the jungle with a pride of lions behind them. Aniruddh Pratap Singh, the CCF of Junagadh wildlife circle has claimed to start an inquiry about the incident.
This is for the second time that Ravindra Jadeja is in the news for off the cricket field incidents. As it is an offence to get down from the vehicle in a protected jungle area, action will be taken against the cricketer and the forest guards, who were involved, Aniruddh Pratap Singh added.
