Tiger injures three in Uttar Pradesh village

LUCKNOW: A tiger has unleashed terror in an Uttar Pradesh village attacking three people and killing cattle, a state forest official said on Monday.

The tiger has strayed into the Mehmoodpur village in Sitapur district, about 80km from Lucknow.

“According to our reports, the tiger is hiding in sugarcane fields of the village,” divisional forest officer RK Sachan said by telephone.

The tiger on Sunday night injured three farmers while they were returning home on their bicycles. Also, the tiger killed a calf and goats in the same village.

He said an intensive combing operation has been launched.

As Sitapur has no forest area, officials believe the tiger has come from the Dudhwa Tiger reserve located in the neighbouring Lakhimpur Kheri district.
