Union Women and Child Development Minister Maneka Gandhi on Sunday while hiting out at Maharashtra Environment and Forests minister over the killing of the "maneater" tigress Avni said it was a "straight case of crime"."It is nothing but a straight case of crime". According to reports, Maharashtra forest officials used a bottle of Calvin Klein Obsession cologne scent near camera traps to lure the dreaded animal, the tigress reportedly killed 14 people, to a place where they can surround her and finally they succeeded in their attempt.

Stating that the tigress had killed 13 people, including eight tribals, since 2016, Mungantiwar said the government had followed the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) guidelines in declaring her a man-eater.

Besides PILs in the Supreme Court and Bombay High Court (Nagpur Bench), several wildlife groups and activists had strongly opposed plans to eliminate Avni since it would also mean near-certain death for her two dependent young ones, online petitions and social media campaigns since several months, demonstrations and protests in a bid to save the tigress and her cubs.

He said if sharp-shooter Asgar Ali has criminal cases registered against him, then Gandhi, being a Union minister, can order his arrest.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Monday sought to target the BJP government over the killing of tigress Avni in Maharashtra by invoking Mahatma Gandhi.

The hunt for the tiger had been has been controversial from the beginning, with activists challenging the forest department in the courts. The court ruled that it would not interfere if forest rangers were forced to shoot the tiger.

Fadnavis said that people were raising doubts whether she had first been hit with a tranquillizer dart. Khan was brought in along with his father, a well-known shooter, to work with the Maharashtra forest department. "I've been told that when forest officials were trying to tranquillize her, she lunged at their jeep", said Fadnavis.

Wildlife officials said wild animals usually stray into residential areas in search of food. In a statement, the organization said, "Avni was killed illegally, satisfying a hunter's lust for blood..."
