Sundarbans (WB), Aug 22 (PTI) Two persons were killed in separate tiger attacks today when they went to catch crabs in Sundarbans Tiger Reserve in South 24-Parganas district, a senior forest official said. “Ranjit Roy, a middle-aged person of Annpur village in Gosaba block, was attacked by a Royal Bengal Tiger in Panchamukhani-II mangrove forest opposite to the village this afternoon,” Field Director of Sundarbans Tiger Reserve, Subrat Mukherjee, told PTI. He had gone with a group of fishermen after obtaining permission from forest department to catch crabs, he said. Another fisherman, Samir Mandal of Emilybari village, was killed when a Royal Bengal Tiger pounced on him late yesterday when their group was catching crabs in the creeks of Panchamukhani-IV forest in the Sundarbans. The locals in Annpur burst crackers to drive away tigers from the other side of the forest. The tigers often swim across the rivers, separating the forest with human-inhabited deltas, to target livestock in villages.
