Shankar Singh, a forest officer, said the search operation for the tiger was delayed due to fog and that the agricultural land it was traced to is spread over a large area and cannot be cordoned off.

Sariska Tiger Reserve field director RN Meena said a team tried to tranquillize the tiger hiding in a mustard field. “The tiger attacked forest employee Heera Lal. He was immediately rushed to a local hospital in Rewari. Other employee Dharma Singh fainted as he saw the tiger attack.”
