A shepherd was killed in what officials suspect was a tiger attack in the Brahmapuri forest division of Maharashtra's Chandrapur district. Sindewahi forest ranger officer Arun Gond said Murmadi village-resident Sadashiv Pendam had gone to the outskirts of the village to graze cattle Sunday evening when the attack took place.

"The body was recovered near Uma river which flows through Navargaon round of Sindewahi forest range. We suspect he was killed by a tiger. The kin of the deceased has been given Rs 30,000 as immediate relief. The rest of the Rs 15 lakh compensation will be given after documentation procedures are completed," he said. Brahmapuri MLA Vijay Wadettiwar arrived in Pendam's village Monday morning and asked forest officials to clear the thicket in the area and translocate tigers and leopards.
