In Dudhwa National Park, the tigress died due to negligence of the employees. Had he got treatment at the right time, his life could have been saved. This has been revealed in the high-level investigation report. Two employees have been suspended in this case. On August 11, the tigress’s body was found in a farm in village Jatpura, located in the buffer zone of the Malani range of Dudhwa National Park. He was tied with a nylon rope. The investigation of the case was submitted to a committee constituted under the chairmanship of Chief Conservator of Wildlife, Western Sunil Chaudhary. The committee has given its report to the headquarters.

Reportedly, the tigress tried to remove the nylon rope from the neck after being trapped in the noose. During this, he had deep wounds in his neck. His condition worsened due to worms. Being weak, he did not get food for several days. She also suffered from dehydration before death. In this way, he died 3 to 4 days after being trapped. If during this time he would have been seen by the forest staff posted on duty, then treatment could be given in a timely manner. This was likely to save his life. Additional Principal Chief Conservator of Forests, Project Tiger PK Sharma said that the concerned forest guard and forester have been suspended in this case. Necessary instructions have also been given to Dudhwa National Park Administration.
Questions arising on the investigation report:Dr BM Arora, former in-charge and retired Principal Scientist at the Center for Wildlife, IVRI, Izatnagar, has questioned this investigation report. He says that when the tiger or tigress is trapped, he first kills his paw in it. Therefore, instead of the neck, the foot gets stuck in the noose first. In such a situation it should also be told whether there was injury to his leg (claw) or not. The noose can be stuck in the neck only when it is fitted on a tree or a high place.  
Dr. Arora says that the nylon rope cannot wound so deeply that it causes harm to the tiger. More and more may be rubbed into his hair. The tigress could have died from the nylon rope in the same condition when her breath suffocated or the jugular vein (nerve) known to the brain was damaged. The tigress would have died instantly if either the breath knee or the juggler van were destroyed. She could not live three to four days after being trapped in a trap. When asked about this, Additional Principal Chief Conservator of Forests, Project Tiger PK Sharma said that there is no mention in the report regarding the injury to the tiger’s claw. It is also not mentioned whether the noose was on the ground or hung above it.
