The CBI was entrusted by the Government of India to investigate the disappearance of tigers from Sariska in 2005. Time and again, advisories have been sent to some tiger States, for handing over the investigation of tiger poaching cases to CBI, considering their ramification beyond State level.
Various steps have been taken by the Government of India to improve the tiger population in each State. This was stated by the Minister of State for Environment and Forests, Shri S. Regupathy in a reply to a question by Smt. T. Ratna Bai in Rajya Sabha today.
