Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): The death of South African male cheetah Uday is still a mystery to many including forest officers associated with Cheetah Project.
Reasons will become clear once the forensic report from veterinary laboratory situated in Jabalpur arrives. The vital parts of Uday will be examined at the laboratory.
