As per Principal Chief Conservator of Forest (Wildlife) Nitin Kakodkar, three-year-old dreaded tigress E1 from Brahmapuri, who was relocated to Melghat Tiger Reserve (MTR) on July 1, would soon be recaptured. The decision was taken after E1 killed a man at Dadra village near Dharni on Friday night.

The tigress earlier had also attacked multiple people at Brahmapuri in Chandrapur district. Hence, the tigress would be kept in confinement forever at Gorewada Rescue Centre at Nagpur once recaptured. A rescue team has also been deployed to capture the radio-collared tigress.

As per Indian Express, “E1, who was involved in at least one human death in Brahmapuri prior to her capture, was released in the core area of MTR in Amravati district. Within a week after her release, she attacked a girl at Kekdakheda village outside MTR. On Friday night, around 10 pm, the tigress attacked one Shobharam Chavan, 45, on his farm. Another man, who is believed to have accompanied him to the farm, was also injured in the attack.”
