Man captures tiger with bare hands

CHANDRAPUR: Ramji Nikode (50) may not have watched Amitabh Bachchan starrer ˜Mr Natwarlal”, but in the wee hours of Thursday, he lived through a stunt the superstar performed in the 1979 flick.

Nikode, a farm labourer, fought and captured a young tiger almost singlehandedly after a struggle that lasted about an hour at his home at Sukhwasi in Chandrapur district. While the weak beast, a one-and-a-half to 2-year-old female, was caged and is being treated, Nikode is undergoing treatment at a local hospital.

Forest officials say the adolescent tiger may have got separated from its mother, for whom a massive hunt has been launched. Forest range officer V W Morey, who rescued the tiger, hailed Nikode’s bravery.
