British couple Brand, Perry gets notice for flouting wildlife laws

A complaint was registered Tuesday at a Ranthambore court against British comedian Russell Brand, singer Katy Perry and four others for flouting environmental laws during the couple's wedding celebrations. According to Akshay Sharma, an advocate who filed the complaint, Perry, Brand and four of their friends, had gone on a safari inside the Ranthmabore National Park Oct 24, the day after their marriage ceremony, where they smoked, drank and carried weapons with them. "They disturbed the wildlife in the park," he alleged. "Inspite of wildlife laws being violated by Katy Perry, Russell Brand, their guests and the hotel administration, the district administration and forest department did not take any action," Sharma said.
They also played loud music in their luxury resort, adjoining the national park, Oct 23 and 24, he said in the complaint. The complainant said various sections of the Indian Wildlife (Protection) Act were violated.
