Two CCTV cameras have been installed in Kumroj buffer zone community forest in Chitwan in a bid to study the behaviour of a tiger that killed a woman recently. 

Whether the tiger is sick or injured will be known through this camera trapping method, and efforts to capture it will be initiated accordingly. 

According to the assistant conservation officer at the Chitwan National Park (CNP) Abhinaya Pathak , the cameras have been set up by technical team of the CNP and the National Trust for Nature Conservation with the help of local people. 

According to a latest study, a single tiger was found to have attacked at least 20 people few years ago and technology was used to capture it.  Of the total 120 tigers in the CNP, five percent are found to be suffering from various problems. A total of 13 people were killed in wild animal attacks in the last fiscal year.
