Thanks for this excellent link, however, the whole story behind is kind of shocking, but why not doing the smuggling also with insects?? I looked for Papilionidae of India but this one wasn't found. Maybe next time I check for Google of India...

Yes and here is the help! Thanks Doc, yours is a better candidate. Now I know where the red lunules have gone...

Remembers me of Papilio bianor, but I am not 100% sure. There are several species also in India. Some of the marking do not match exactly for example the green spots (usually more stripes) on the forewing and the red lunules at the aera of the tail. So, take it as a hint to get closer. Maybe some of our Indian friends can help more...
