In an unfortunate event, a Tigeress was killed due to the lack of co-ordination between the local police and the Forest department.
Kaziranga tigress took 15 bullets
JORHAT: An adult tigress was killed at Assam's Kaziranga National Park by an automatic gun. An autopsy conducted on Tuesday found 15 bullets from AK-47 rifles in the animal's body. The tigress was shot when it tried to attack people near the Kohora forest range Monday morning.
Park authorities said the tigress was killed by armed police. The police, however, denied saying the animal was killed when forest guards fired to save the lives of locals. The park authorities and National Tiger Conservation Authority of India have begun two separate inquiries into the killing.
Assam forest minister Rockybul Hussain also ordered a probe into the killing of the tigress. A spokesman said the probe will be supervised by additional conservator of forests O P Pandey and his deputy C R Borbora.
