More evidence suggesting that 'Ustad' has been unfairly treated.

Experts from the Bareilly-based Indian Veterinary Research Institute (IVRI) have found "nothing unusual" in the behavior of nine-year-old tiger T-24, also known as 'Ustad', that was translocated from Ranthambhore in Rajasthan to Udaipur after a forester was attacked and killed by a male tiger in the National Park. Though it was not clear whether it was T-72 or T-24 that attacked, Ustad was shifted as there were three incidents against him. Since then T-24 has been under observation.
