KUALA LUMPUR: A group of poachers, including a plantation general manager, have been nab­bed by the Department of Wildlife and National Parks (Perhilitan) in a bust that may have crippled one of the major poaching syndicates in Kelantan.

The seven Malaysians, aged between 28 and 52, were believed to have been on their way out of the jungle at Aring 5 in Gua Musang when they were arrested on Friday.
