They shot Avni dead!
Nov 3, 2018 —
I am heartbroken to inform you that despite overwhelming efforts to get justice for Avni, a private shooter with the backing of powerful people in the Maharashtra Government has shot Avni dead last night, in what can only be described as a 'fake-encounter' style killing.
With Avni's death, it may well nigh impossible to locate and secure her cubs, and they may also be dead soon.
Avni's death highlights the abject mismanagement by the Maharashtra Forest Department, the collusion of the Forest Minister, the total abdication of power by the National Tiger Conservation Authority, and the underlying conspiracy fostered by greedy industrialists to grab the mineral wealth lying buried under Avni's home.
