LUCKNOW: A tiger sneaked out of the Dudhwa reserve forest in Uttar Pradesh’s Lakhimpur district and attacked a 15-year-old girl, an official said on Monday.

“The tiger attacked the girl Sunday. Seriously injured in the attack, the girl is undergoing treatment and her condition is critical,” Divisional Forest Officer (DFO), K.K. Singh told reporters in Lakhimpur, about 180 km from state capital Lucknow.

“Panic has gripped the entire Sumar Nagar village, where the tiger attacked the girl while she was working in her sugarcane fields,” he added.

A combing operation was underway to drive the tiger back into the forest. It was suspected to be still hiding in the sugarcane fields of the village.

Dudhwa, one of the country’s largest tiger reserves, has 106 tigers according to the last census.
