Park rangers serving prison sentences for causing gun injury during their patrols will be released on the back of a special budget allotted by the government to pay compensation to the victims. 
The directive, which was approved by the Cabinet early in July, earmarked 30 billion rials ($0.7 million) of budget to cover such unpredicted costs as blood money, losses inflicted  by wildlife on park rangers, farmers and owners of gardens.
A sum of 18 billion rials ($0.4 m) from the total fund has been supplied to pay the blood money of those who were killed in conflicts with park rangers while on their duty since 2015, Fars News Agency quoted Colonel Jamshid Mohabbatkhani, head of Department of Environment’s Protection Unit, as saying.
