A tiger which had killed a man two days ago was captured on Monday in Maharashtra's Yavatmal district by the forest department, officials said.

The tiger had killed the man on the intervening night of Friday-Saturday in Pivardol village of the district, they said.

A senior forest department official told PTI that "The tiger was captured from Zari-Jamni tehsil in the afternoon when it was roaming around human-dominated landscape." The wild animal has been shifted to a transit treatment centre in Nagpur, he added.
