A tiger may have reached the doorstep of Gurgaon, wildlife officials said on Wednesday, adding that a team would soon scan the area for pugmarks to confirm it.

Villagers of Teekli, 11 km from Gurgaon, have claimed that they have sighted the tiger and its pugmarks near water bodies close to the Aravali Hills.

District Wildlife Warden Rambir Singh said, “There is a possibility of a tiger straying out of the Sariska National Park in Alwar (around 170 km away in Rajasthan).”

However, a 2005 report of the Wildlife Institute of India had said that there were no tigers left in Sariska.
