Tiger kills man

Sagar Island, Jan. 14: A fisherman was mauled to death by a tiger in the Sunderbans on Sunday.

Forest officials and fellow fishermen found Swapan Halder’s half-eaten body deep in the forest today.

Halder, 45, and four others from Kultali had set out with their boat on the Matla on Saturday. They were standing on the riverbank yesterday when the tiger pounced on Halder from behind.

An alert has been sounded for fishermen casting their nets near Kalash Island, 250km south of Calcutta.
