A 14-month-old lion, who recently suffered a paralysis attack, died during treatment at the city-based Kamala Nehru Park today, an official said.

The lion, named Sultan, had suffered a hind limb paralysis three days ago and was undergoing treatment, zoo in-charge Uttam Yadav said. "Over the last couple of days, the lion had stopped eating.

Despite the best efforts by veterinary doctors, he could not be saved," the official added.

The post-mortem was conducted by government veterinary doctors and the cause of Sultan's death will be known once the report is submitted, Yadav said. Sultan was an Asiatic lion and born in the municipal corporation-run zoo, he said adding that after his death, there are four lionesses and six lions left in the zoo.
