Tiger kills 60-year-old woman

A 60-year-old woman was killed by a tiger in the Mala range of the Pilibhit tiger reserve here today, the police said.

The woman – Nanki Devi of Maithi Saidullaganj village – had gone to her fields where the incident happened.

The locals heard a loud cry but before they could rush to her rescue, the tiger dragged her into the forest, the police said.

Later a half-bitten body of the woman was recovered, they added.

Following the incident, the family of the deceased and other locals lodged a strong protest against forest department staff alleging that their repeated complaints about maneaters being active in the region had been ignored.
