Jaipur: The postmortem report of "ST-1",a translocated tiger found dead recently at Rajasthan`s Sariska reserve, has ruled out any territorial fight or poaching as the cause of the death of the big cat.

"The postmortem report says that neigther it was a territorial fight or shooting which led to the tiger`s death," Principal Chief Wildife Warden H M Bhatia said.

However, he said, it is not the final report and the exact reason for its death could be known only after the FSL report comes.

The carcass of "ST-1" was found by a forest department team in Sariska sanctuary on Sunday night. On the other hand, Bhatia claimed, link through radio signals with the missing tiger ST-4 continues and the big cat is moving in the dense forest.

"We are constantly receiving radio signals but the tiger is not visible yet as the animal is moving in dense forest," he added.
