LUCKNOW: A tiger killed a railway employee and mauled two others in Uttar Pradesh Saturday, an official said.

The incident took place near the Bichiya Railway Station in Bahraich district, where the Katarniyaghat forest reserve is located, some 150 km from here, divisional forest officer (DFO) R.K. Singh said.

The animal attacked and killed the employee about one kilometre away from the railway station when he was returning home after work, the official said.

The big cat also injured two people, who tried to rescue the employee from its claws.

Nearly three weeks ago, a tiger had injured three farmers and killed two oxen in the same district.

In August, a leopard also attacked four people, killing one of them, in Sujauli village in Bahraich.
