Usually, the fight also occurs when it gets separated from its mother and establishes its territory. I was hopeful that there are more tigers and they could not be counted properly.”

“Cameras are being installed at different locations. The tiger has been captured in one of the cameras from a distance and it has been captured well,” Singh added.
