Goa forest dept mum on tiger report

STAFF WRITER 14:27 HRS IST

Panaji, Feb 6 (PTI) Goa Forest department has maintained an uncanny silence over a Wildlife Institute of India’s (WII) report which confirmed that a tiger was killed in the state last year.

Highly placed sources said that the report reached the office of deputy conservator of forest G T Kumar two weeks back.

Kumar, however, talking to PTI said that “he cannot reveal anything from the report.”

The tiger was poached in Keri village, 60 kms away from here, in February last year.

State Forest Minister Philip Nery Rodrigues said that chief conservator of forest Dr Shashi Kumar, who is currently out of station, has telephonically confirmed receipt of the report.

“Government will get the detailed report from the department and only after that it will comment,” Rodrigues said.

The minister said that the future course of action will depend on the report.
