The tiger that attacked Santosh was earlier in Jalgaon’s Yaval Sanctuary. He was then brought to Khargone, which is about 100 km away. ‘After hunting, the tiger was sitting in Amba Dochar area. Villagers gathered to see him. They started troubling the tiger,’ said Dinesh Vaskel, SDO of Bhikagaon.
After hunting, the tiger, who was sitting peacefully, was harassed by the villagers. Santosh Bhaskar touched the tiger’s tail with a stick. The stick hit the tiger’s tail. Enraged by this, the tiger attacked Santosh. He held Santosh’s neck from behind. Santosh was severely injured. He was admitted to a hospital 40 km away. Santosh said that his condition improved during the treatment. But soon his health deteriorated and he died.
