Maharashtra. “We will also probe where the body parts of the two poached tigers were disposed of,” the police official said.  

On May 25, the Chhindwara forest department officials had nabbed an 11-member gang of poachers belonging to Pardhi community with a metal trap near Linga, 110km from Nagpur, outside Pench tiger reserve in Madhya Pradesh.

 

 

A wildlife expert on the condition of anonymity said that the Chhindwara side of Pench seems to be turning into a favourite hunting ground for poachers as there are reports of good tiger dispersal on this side.
