The Supreme Court on Thursday ordered a status quo regarding relocation of tiger T-24 from the Ranthambore National Park.

The tiger, which had reportedly mauled a security guard to death earlier this month, is being sought to be shifted from the wild into captivity owing to alleged pressure from the tourism lobby thriving around the national park.
