Nagpur: One of the two cubs of tigress 'T1' alias 'Avni', who was shot dead last month, was captured Saturday, a senior Maharashtra forest officer said.

The two cubs were earlier spotted in a forest and the officials had said that they could be rescued and rehabilitated. Avni was hunted down in November and was believed to have killed at least 13 people. Locals had reportedly celebrated her death by firing crackers.

A joint team of officials from Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh forest departments managed to tranquilise and capture the female cub in Anji forest in Yavatmal district in east Maharashtra in afternoon.

"The one-year-old female cub was tranquilised and caught at compartment no 665 in the Anji forest in Ralegaon at around 4 pm", said Additional Principal Chief Conservator of Forest, Wildlife East, Nagpur, Sunil Limye.

A team of around 100 people, including six veterinary officers from Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh, have been tracking the cub since November 2 when T1 was shot dead by Asghar Ali Khan, the son of India's most famous hunter Nawab Shafath Ali Khan.

"The cub will now be sent to Pench and will be kept in an enclosure which is almost like an open forest. The cub is physically fit. A committee will be formed to decide about it release in wild", Limye said.
