Jabalpur: 36 tigers have died so far in 2021 in Tiger State Madhya Pradesh. This has been claimed in a petition filed in the Jabalpur bench of the Madhya Pradesh High Court. In fact, the petitioner says that the highest tiger has occurred in the national park forest and this is the biggest and most worrying thing. Let me tell all of you that an important petition has been filed by the Madhya Pradesh High Court regarding the protection of tigers in Madhya Pradesh, which has tiger state status.
The petition is said to have been heard and a bench of High Court Chief Justice Ravi Malimath and Justice Vishal Dhagut issued notices to the Central Government and the National Tiger Conservation Authority seeking their response. As part of the information received, the petition filed by Bhopal resident environment activist Ajay Dubey has argued that a total of 526 tigers were found in the 2018 census in Madhya Pradesh. While 36 tiger deaths have been confirmed so far in 2021.
Not only that, the petitioner's advocate Aditya Sanghi has also said, "As per the information issued in all media institutions about Tiger's death, one's genitals have been cut off and someone's organ has been smuggled. It has also come to light that different parts of the tiger body are being smuggled to China via Nepal, but no effective efforts have been made to prevent it. He said, "The highest number of tiger deaths have taken place in the National Tiger Reserve Area so that the measures being adopted for their safety and the action plan should be given. Let me tell all of you that the hearing was held last Monday and during this hearing, the Madhya Pradesh High Court has issued a notice to the National Tiger Conservation Authority seeking its response. The next hearing in the entire case will now be held on 7th January 2022.
