India: After escaping from enclosure, lioness kills forest guard in Sanjay Gandhi NP

A lioness killed a forest guard while a lion escaped from its enclosure in the Sanjay Gandhi National Park in Mumbai on Tuesday evening, officials said.

The attack took place due to the alleged negligence of the forest guard as he left the door of the enclosure open during feeding time of the lions, an official said.

According to an official, Harichand Gangwan, the forest guard, had gone to feed the five lions and lionesses in the enclosure at around 6 pm but he apparently forgot to shut the trap door separating the wild animals and the feeding area.
