BAHRAICH: The tiger that entered district border recently, travelled 2.5 kilometres on Tuesday and again entered Sitapur border, thus creating terror among those residing in Majha area. The forest officers of Sitapur and Bahraich districts have launched ‘Push’ campaign to divert the tiger towards Katarniaghat.

Forest guard Devendra Kumar told TOI that a control room has been set up at Bhagwanpur to maintain constant vigil and to minimise the terror of the tiger. Vigil is also being maintained round the clock by installing camps at Sisaiya Chudamani and Baruha. Four teams of forest guard each consisting six have been deployed in the area for the same. Moreover the services of the villagers are also being taken.

It has been decided on the basis of pugmarks that it was a adult male tiger. The terror of tiger is prevailing in Lakhimpur and Siddarthnagar also. They said that there is no proposal so far, to kill the tiger or to tranquillise it but efforts are being made to push it back to Katarniaghat so that it may get natural dwelling area.

The forest guards deployed to push back the tiger are fully equipped with GPS machine, search lights and arms.
