Fisherman dies in tiger attack

Kultali, Jun 13 (UNI) A fisherman was killed by a tiger attack.
Eyewitnesses said on Saturday morning four fishermen from Deulbari area of Kultali police station in South 24 Parganas district went out on a boat to catch fish and crabs in the river. When they were fishing near the Chituri forest in the Sundarbans, a tiger suddenly came out of the jungle and jumped on Gostha Naiya(36).
Gostha's companions immediately counter-attacked the tiger with sticks. The tiger then left Gostha and went into the forest. However, Gostha was seriously injured in the incident. When he was being taken to the hospital in a boat, Gostha died due to excessive bleeding.
However, according to forest department sources Gostha and his team went to cut down trees in the Sundarbans. Gostha was then killed by a tiger.
A shadow of gloom descended in the area following the incident.
Meanwhile, former CPI(M) minister Kanti Ganguly gave Rs 20,000 for Gostha's last rites and assured to take care of his children's education.
