SC rejects plea against tiger shifting
The Supreme Court on Monday declined to entertain a petition against the shifting of <g data-gr-id="16">tiger</g> 'Ustaad', an alleged man-eater, from the Ranthambore reserved forest to an Udaipur zoo.
The tiger was shifted from Ranthambore forest after it killed a forest guard on May 8. A vacation bench of Justices P C Pant and Amitava Roy said it would not interfere with the order of the Rajasthan High Court which had dismissed the plea against the relocation of tiger -- T-24 or 'Ustaad', from the Ranthambore reserved forest to Sajjangarh Biological Park in Udaipur, Rajasthan.
"This is not the case in which the court should interfere. The tiger has only been shifted from one place to another. Had there been any direction to kill him, we would have done something.
