Bhopal: A tiger from Ranthambore National Park in Rajasthan has strayed into Madhya Pradesh, following which a vigil is being maintained in the forest area of Morena district.

"Rajasthan Chief Wildlife Warden H M Bhatia yesterday contacted me and informed that a tiger from Ranthambore has entered Morena district," Principal Chief Conservator of Forest (Wildlife) H S Pabla said today.

"We are maintaining a vigil in Morena district," he said adding that Madhya Pradesh forest ground staffers are yet to spot the big cat.

The big cat had left Ranthambore some days back, after which more than 100 Rajasthan forest officials were trying hard to locate and bring it back, officials said.

A few days back, some evidence suggested that the striped beast was in the ravines of Chambal in Dholpur district from where it entered Madhya Pradesh, officials said adding Dholpur and Morena are only 35 kms apart.
