The Delhi Zoo Tragedy

  • A Tuesday in a Delhi Zoo turns sour after a youth aged 20-22 fell into a tiger’s enclosure and eventually killed by the white tiger. As per the reports of the curator of the National Zoological Park, Delhi, “The youth himself jumped into the tiger’s cage.” The youth was later identified as Maqsood. He was apparently leaning against the moat separating the tiger’s den from the visitor’s viewpoint and tumbled into the tiger’s enclosure.

    The tiger approached the youth as soon as he slipped into the enclosure and watched him for about 15 minutes before it grabbed the youth by his neck, hauled him to a corner and killed him. Eyewitness accused the zoo security of their inability to response quickly.
