Lakhimpur Kheri, Jan 8 (PTI) Two forest officials of Pallia range under the north Kheri division have been suspended following the recovery of a tiger carcass in Paraspur forest outpost recently.

Forester Subhash Chandra and forest guard Sharda have been suspended while explanation from some other officials has been sought for their alleged laxity in the matter, divisional forest officer Kartik Kumar Singh said here today.

"A high level inquiry was on into the tiger casualty and stringent action would follow in case of any foul play behind the tiger's death," he said.
