won and now 13 years later Shrivastava a standing counsel with Delhi-based NGO Wildlife Protection Society of India (WPSI) and a Special Public Prosecutor (Wildlife) for the government of Madhya Pradesh has secured over 121 convictions in wildlife poaching cases The 42-year-old has taken on some of the most hardened poachers in Katni district of Madhya Pradesh In her 14 years of practice she has been responsible for over 121 convictions at a conviction rate of between 70 and 80 per cent According to the WPSI website Shrivastava was “instrumental in the conviction of a total of 43 wildlife criminals including five cases involving Schedule I species” in 2008 alone Nitin Desai the WPSI director in Central India says what makes Shrivastava’s work significant is that the Wildlife Protection Act though “powerful” doesn’t have a procedural code and “prosecutors have to rely heavily on the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC)” And it is in this area that Manjula has worked wonders “With her amazing grasp of both laws she has not only obtained several convictions but has also managed to convince the courts to divert part of the money received as fines from convicted poachers to the Forest Department as compensation for losing wild animals This is extremely rare We are very proud of her work” says Desai one of world’s leading anti-poaching experts Shrivastava is also the legal advisor for Panna Tiger Reserve and the honorary wildlife warden for Katni district She doesn’t charge any money for her work for the Katni Forest Department Shrivastava says the main problem in wildlife cases is of “witnesses turning hostile” “Sometimes the ground staff of the Forest Department also cause problems Five years ago a Forest Department vehicle had hit a tigress in the Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve” she says After she took up the case some forest officers moved the Bar Council demanding that her licence be cancelled “But I won that battle” she says proudly It led to the suspension of two range forest officers and a sub-divisional officer The cases in which Shrivastava has been successful in getting convictions range from poaching and trade in tiger and leopard parts to crimes against herbivores She also handles cases related to mining in forest areas family disputes and other crimes Her work however comes with its share of risks “I often get abuses and threats from relatives of convicts sometimes right on the court premises and am often escorted out in a jail van But I do my work because this is the only way I can repay my debt to Mother Earth” says Shrivastava Important
