National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) has asked all the chief wildlife wardens (CWLWs) of tiger range states to take urgent measures for preventing wild animal mortality due to train hits.

The move follows a 10-month-old tiger cub getting killed and another getting seriously injured when a speeding train hit them on April 15 night near Kelzar on Gondia-Chanda Fort section. The injured one, which suffered leg fractures, is still being treated in city.
