The tiger killed a youth named Maqsood who allegedly jumped into its enclosure despite repeated warnings by the guards on Tuesday. Vijay dragged the youth by his neck which caused his death.
After the incident, Vijay didn't show any sign of stress, said doctors, as quotes by TOI. "He has eaten the buffalo meat given to him on Tuesday at 4.30pm after the incident. Vijay is normal. His vital parameters are ok. He doesn't need any medication. He is not stressed either," said Dr Paneer Selvam, zoo veterinarian.
Many claim that there weren't many security guards or zoo personnel in the vicinity who could come to the rescue of the boy. The tiger mauled the youth, killing him. The incident took place at 1:30 pm.
