Tiger kills woman in Dighori forest India

 

BHANDARA: A woman, who went into Dighori forest in Bhandara district to collect firewood, was killed by a full grown tiger on Saturday afternoon. The deceased Chhaya Deshpande (28) hailed form Manegaon village in Lakhandur taluka.

 

Chhaya, along with some other women, had gone to Dighori forest to collect the firewood when a lurking tiger pounced on her. As she cried for help, the other women who accompanied her ran from the spot. But Nanda Kathane, a member of the group, started shouting loudly to drive the tiger away. But the beast attacked Nanda. She, however, braved the assault with the help of a bamboo basket and saved her life. After some minutes the tiger retreated but dragged Chhaya’s lifeless body to some 30 meters.

 

Deceased Chhaya is survived by son and daughter. Range forest officer CJ Mahakalkar informed that the forest department announced a compensation of Rs2 lakh to Chhaya’s family. Rs10,000 were given for performing last rites.
