In August the tigress and her two nine-month-old cubs killed three people in the area around the town of Pandharkawada in Yavatmal district and left more than 5,000 residents fearing for their lives.
The tigress was shifted to Nagpur for post-mortem. Dr Jerryl Banait, who approached the Supreme Court against the September 4 shoot-at-sight order of the state forest department, alleged the tigress was shot dead without any effort to tranquillise her.

However, after hit by the darts she went violent and attacked the team when one of the team members Asgar shot at her and she was killed, the press note from the forest department said. The tigress could have been easily tranquilised and relocated.
