#AceNewsDesk – A tiger that became known as the “Man-eater of Champaran” after killing at least nine residents of an Indian village this year has been shot dead in a police operation involving more than 200 people.
It happened on Saturday, just a day after the National Tiger Conservation Authority granted police permission to take lethal action following an increase in fatal attacks last week.
The tiger — a three-year old male Bengal officially known as T-104 — had been living in a forest and sugarcane fields near a village in West Champaran, a district in the north-eastern state of Bihar.
Its first confirmed attack on a human took place in May, but it had recently begun to attack the village more frequently, with local media reporting it had dragged a 12-year-old girl from her bed on Wednesday night.
It also killed a 35-year-old widow and her young son on Saturday morning.
The official hunt for the tiger began several weeks ago, with attempts to tranquillise it proving unsuccessful, and police being criticised by villagers for failing to keep them safe.
However, Saturday’s operation was a larger and more coordinated, involving eight shooters, about 200 forest service officials, and locals keen to help.
Two teams of police, some riding elephants, entered the forest to flush the tiger out into an ambush before he was shot dead about 3:15pm, local time.
Valmiki Tiger Reserve director Neshamani K told the Hindustan Times an autopsy would be conducted on the tiger and its remains would be sent to wildlife research institutes for forensic testing.
Nearly 225 people have been killed in tiger attacks between 2014 and 2019 in India, according to government figures.
Conservationists blame the rapid expansion of human settlements around forests and key wildlife corridors for the increase in human-animal conflict.
India is home to around 70 per cent of the world’s tigers, and the tiger population was estimated at 2,967 in 2018.
