Mob kills tigress as officials watch

Raipur: As officials watched in horror, a 10,000-mob lynched a tigress trapped in a net in Chhattisgarh with sticks and stones and then took out a 'victory procession'.

"It was a pathetic situation. We had already put a net on the tigress to capture her alive but the people lynched the tigress," Rakesh Chaturvedi, an official present at the site on Saturday, said.

The seven-feet-long and 250 kg tigress had reportedly become a terror as she had killed a woman and around 30 domesticated animals in Rajnangaon district since late July.
