A tiger, which strayed into human settlements in Moradabad division and killed four persons in 11 days, claimed yet another victim in Bijnore’s Afzalganj area Friday. This comes a day after the UP forest department declared it a “maneater”.
Till date, the tiger has claimed five lives — three in Moradabad and one each in Bijnore and Sambhal.
On Friday, the body of 25-year-old Shiv Kumar was found in an open field at Maniyavala village along the Moradabad-Bijnore border. Forest department officials said the animal after killing the victim dragged the body to the field. The pugmarks indicate the tiger is an adult.
Forest conservator, Moradabad, Kamlesh Kumar said the forest department has authorised Nawab Shafat Ali Khan of Hyderabad, Shahab bin Asif of Bijnore and Harish Chandra Dhami of Nanital to locate and kill the tiger.
Meanwhile, Divisional Forest Officer, Bijnore, Vijay Singh, said that in the last three days forest department officials have alerted residents of villagers along the Moradabad-Bijnore border.
Meanwhile, residents of Mora Taiya village in Moradabad staged protests Friday after no forest official turned up when they informed them about spotting the tiger in a nearby field. Divisional Forest Officer, Moradabad, BC Brahma, however, claimed the animal has left Moradabad. Forest officials suspect the animal had come from the Jim Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand through Bijnore.
