A 55-year-old farmer was injured when a tiger attacked him in his sugarcane field near Maheshpur range forests under south Kheri forest division, officials said.

“The farmer, identified as Harish Chandra, was applying fertilizers in his cane crop on Tuesday when the big cat attacked him. On hearing his screams, other farmers working in adjacent fields rushed to help following which the tiger ran away and hid in the sugarcane fields,” said range officer Naresh Pal Singh.
