A 60-year-old man was killed in a tiger attack in Chichpalli forest range in Maharashtra’s Chandrapur district, an official said on Saturday. Santosh Vittal Gurnule, resident of Kavadpeth village, noticed some of his cattle missing and ventured into a dense forest patch late Friday evening looking for them and was killed by a tiger, said Chandrapur divisional forest officer AL Sonkusre. “We noticed tiger pug marks near the spot where Gurnule was killed.
