20/May/2010Tigress Killed by Safari Vehicle hit in Bandhavgarh National Park, Justice still awaited:    Last updated: -05/July/2011
So many news were presented here later shifted to archive page, but we have kept this here, in main news page so that readers may recollect their memories and let them know that culprits are still roaming freely. Justice delayed is equivalent to Justice Denied.
On Wednesday 19/May/2010, a tigress of 08 years old found dead in Jhurjhura region, close to water source in Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve. It was first spotted by tourists and reported to forest official. She died before the help reached to her. She was having 3 cubs of about 05 months old. First, forest officials declared the death cause as illness or conflict with other tiger. Postmortem report revealed the death cause as multiple injuries due to multiple hit by vehicle. Images recently released of postmortem carried out reveals that Postmortem was done in open air and axe is used in postmortem related work. It shows the level of arrangement and facilities available for animals. Investigation is going on. During investigation, several safari jeeps who have been allotted the route on the accident spot lies were detained for forensic examination and were later released with clean-chit. So far 03 employees were suspended in the case. Pressure is mounting on State Government so case is now handed-over to CID (Crime Investigation Department). Local people know the fact but as officials are high-profile & part of same system, nobody came openly. We suspect, if fact will come out & culprits will be presecuted fairly.
Till 10th of August 2010, investigating authorities are not able to find actual culprit. Although in some day some outcome will be made public but delay in justice is equivalent to denial of justice. It seems search for scapegoat is going on. Despite of visible facts, why authorities are not in a position to nab the culprit is a mystery.
