Uttar Pradesh: Bhola Singh, a 40-year-old resident of Nayapind village, lost his life in a tiger attack near Manjhra forests in the Dudhwa buffer zone (DBZ) of Uttar Pradesh. The unfortunate incident occurred on Thursday, highlighting the persistent human-wildlife conflict in the region.

Saureesh Sahai, the deputy director of DBZ, confirmed the attack and specified that the location was on the borders of DBZ and Katarniaghat Wildlife Sanctuary (KWS) area. In response to the incident, forest teams have been deployed, and an official report has been requested. Monetary compensation will be considered based on the findings of the report.

According to accounts from villagers, Bhola Singh had ventured into the jungles to graze his cattle when a tiger, likely from a neighboring forest, attacked him. The tiger attempted to drag Singh into the forest, but his cries alerted nearby farmers. Responding swiftly, the farmers chased away the tiger, forcing it to retreat into the forest. Unfortunately, Bhola Singh succumbed to the injuries sustained during the attack.

This incident underscores the ongoing challenges of coexistence between human populations and wildlife in the region. The authorities are expected to investigate the circumstances surrounding the attack and assess the appropriate compensation for the victim’s family.
