Bhopal, Sep 6 (UNI) A white tigress, who was fighting cancer since the past few months, died last night at Van Vihar here.

With the death of 'Rini', Van Vihar has become devoid of white tigress. The tigress, who had been brought from Nandankanan in Orissa in 1992, was found to be suffering from cancer in March.

Van Vihar Director Surendra Singh Rajput told UNI on telephone that talks were under progress with Nandankanan to bring another white tigress to Van Vihar and there were positive indications.

The last rites of 'Rini' were performed after necropsy.
