Ustad gets clean bill of health and is NOT a man-eater.

T-24, the Ranthambhore tiger that was shifted to a cage in Sajjangarh Biological Park in Udaipur by forest officials for allegedly killing a forest guard has got a clean chit from Indian Veterinary Research Institute (IRVI), Bareilly.

The institute, a Central government-approved body reportedly did not find any human body particle in the samples sent by the forest department immediately after the incident. According to sources, the institute said that in its investigation of the samples it didn’t find human body particles, which means that the tiger didn’t eat human body after alleged killing. Hopefully the Athorities will now reconsider their position and return Ustad to his forest home at Ranthambhore. See link below to read the report in The Asian Age.
