According to police, Bhim admitted that the duo hunted wild animals in Kotdwar in Uttarakhand and Bijnor in Uttar Pradesh, and made money by smuggling and selling their body parts, including skin and bones.
According to police, six cases have been registered against the duo, including one in Gurgaon in 2008, after 20 kg of tiger bones, ivory, and turtle were recovered from them. That case is under trial, said police, adding that the five other cases have been registered in Uttarakhand.
Police said they began tracking down the duo in March this year, after 56 grams of tiger meat and two bottles of tiger fat were recovered during a raid on their house in Surat Nagar.
Bhim was produced in court and has been sent to police remand for further questioning.
