Ujjain, MP, Oct 23 (UNI) In a freak incident, as many as 10 deer died after fighting one another at a privately-run zoo here.

''A male and nine females perished at the Vikram Vatika zoo managed by the local Bhadoria Group,'' said Forest Department Sub-Divisional Officer D C Vyas while furnishing details of yesterday's incident.

Post mortem revealed antler wounds and a departmental inquiry is in progress.

The Vikram Vatika, on land belonging to the Vikram University, was handed over to the municipal corporation by the varsity. A decade back the corporation leased out the Vatika to the Bhadoria group. Fifty deer are among other animals at the zoo.
