A tiger was found dead in Khapa range of Madhya Pradesh's famous Kanha Tiger Reserve, a top forest department official said.

"The tiger was found dead with a deep wound around its neck on October 6 near a drain in Khapa range of Kanha, situated in eastern Madhya Pradesh," State Additional Principal Chief Conservator of Forests T R Sharma said.

The tiger, who was about 10 to 12-year-old, possibly, had sustained injury to his neck in a territorial fight with another tiger some days back, he added.

The body of the tiger was disposed off after post-mortem was carried out under the guidelines of National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) in Kanha though the post-mortem report is yet to be received by the department.

This was the fourth death of a tiger being attributed to territorial fights in the last one year in Kanha Tiger Reserve spread over an area of 2000 sq km, sources said.
