“Tigress Avni was shot like a terrorist, was not a man eater:” Contempt petition in Supreme Court


The Supreme Court on Wednesday issued notice to Maharashtra government officials in a contempt petition filed in connection with the 2018 killing of tigress Avni (Sangeeta Dogra v. Vilas Kharge & Ors).

A Bench of Chief Justice of India SA Bobde and Justices AS Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian also sought evidence from petitioner Sangeeta Dogra to confirm whether or not the tigress was a man-eater.
