Sunderbans (WB): A 70-year-old man was dragged away by a tiger at Sajnekhali in the Sunderbans reserve forest today.

Upen Sardar, who hailed from Gosaba in South 24 Parganas district, was dragged away by a big cat while he was catching crabs at Panchamkhali creek, a forest official said.

As Sardar cried for help, his son and daughter-in-law, ran behind the tiger but it vanished in the nearby mangrove.

There was no trace of Sardar yet, the official added.
