A tiger killed a shepherd near Mul in Chandrapur district (150 km from Nagpur) on Thursday. The victim, Kalidas Masram (45), a leprosy patient, was an inmate of Baba Amte's Somnath ashram near the popular Tadoba tiger project.
His body was recovered on Friday. Sources said the tiger attacked him and dragged the body into the forest.
Angry villagers and ashram inmates demanded authorities should kill the tiger immediately. Range forest officer Arun Tikhe told HT that the villagers had been told not to move in the area after dark, and that compensation of Rs 2 lakh would be given to the family members of the victim.
Masram is the 22nd victim in Chandrapur since January 2007.
