'26 tigers missing' from Ranthambhore park, claims tiger board member

Feb 21, 2020 19:29 IST

Claiming that 26 tigers are missing from Ranthambhore National Park in Rajasthan, BJP MP and member of the National Tiger Conservation Authority Diya Kumari has written to the Union environment minister, demanding a high-level inquiry in the matter. Kumari, in a letter to Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar, said a report has been submitted to the state government, stating that 26 tigers are missing from the park, which is located in Sawai Madhopur district. The MP has also stated in her letter that the attitude of officials concerned and authorities of the park was "half-hearted and lackadaisical". She also said the poachers must be identified, caught and strict action must be taken against them to prevent recurrence of incidents.
