A 21-year-old man was killed in an attack by a tiger in Maharashtra’s Gadchiroli district, a forest official said.

The incident took place on Tuesday afternoon when the victim, Ajit Nakade, a resident of Desaiganj, went to the Ussegaon forest with a female friend on a two-wheeler.

The duo ventured deep into the forest where a tiger suddenly pounced on Nakade and dragged him away, the official said.

Nakade’s friend managed to escape from the spot and alerted other people, he said.

Forest department officials launched a search and later found the man’s body, which was sent for postmortem, he added.
