The roar of mighty Jai, the tiger from Umred Karhandla Wildlife Sanctuary, has been missing since April of this year. It has been more than three months that this huge, radio collared tiger has not been sighted in and around Umred Karhandla Wildlife Sanctuary.
After Jai's collar malfunctioned the second time, his satellite location has been untraceable too. Despite extensive combing by FD, the tiger's whereabouts are still a mystery. Wildlife lovers everywhere have expressed their concerns on the sudden disappearance of Jai and have requested the Forest Department to deploy STPF staff from Pench Tiger Reserve and SRPF staff, in territorial divisions of Umred and Nagpur and similar activity to be undertaken in Brahmapuri territorial division too.
In a first of its kind activity, Conservation Lenses and Wildlife (CLaW), an independent group of wildlife lovers and photographers has announced a cash prize of Rs. 50,000/- (Rupees Fifty Thousand Only) to anyone who can help finding Jai, give physical evidence and credible information about his whereabouts leading to the location of the tiger Jai. Many wildlife lovers and NGO's have come forward to intensify the search operations and CLaW believes that this monetary incentive will further encourage people to come forward with credible information and evidences of his presence. This would speed up the process of finding the mighty tiger who has sired around 20 cubs in Umred Karhandla Wildlife Sanctuary and single handedly taken Umred Karhandla Wildlife Sanctuary from anonymity to a happening tourist hotspot, thereby ensuring jobs for local villagers as drivers and guides.
CLaW has requested that people with credible information can contact the following persons:
1) Mr Vinit Arora - 9860062994
2)Mr Ameet Jain - 9975024518
The identity of the people providing information about Jai will be kept confidential and will not be disclosed to anybody.
