Nagpur (Maharashtra) [India], Oct 17 (ANI): The Bombay High Court's Nagpur bench on Tuesday sought a reply from the state forest department to disclose how there have not been any deaths in the last two months by man-eater T-1 tigress in Pandharkawda forest.
The Maharashtra Forest Department had earlier issued shoot-at-sight orders against the tigress, which has killed 14 people in the state.
The bench also sought reply about the change in the sequence of steps to be taken as mentioned in the PCCF's (Principal Chief Conservator of Forests) order as opposed to the CCF's (Chief Conservator of Forests) order.
The earlier order had stated that first the cubs would be tranquillized and then the tigress, as opposed to the CCF order which stated that T-1 would be tranquillized first and then the cubs. (ANI)
