Tiger kills fisherman in Sunderbans

STAFF WRITER 12:24 HRS IST

Canning (WB), Oct 1 (PTI) A 30-year-old man was killed by a tiger while he was fishing in a creek at the Nabanki jungle in the Sunderbans sanctuary today.

Ahmed Sheikh, resident of Gosaba near here, was taken by surprise when the tiger attacked him from behind and dragged him into the forest.

His companions chased the big cat and found the dead body of Sheikh in the forest near Pirkhali.

Sunderbans field director Subroto Mukhopadhyay said Sheikh held the Board License Card issued by the jungle authorities allowing him fishing and access to the forest.

There has been a spate of incidents of tigers intruding the nearby villages in the past one year.
