Sambar stampeds tourists in Parikrama

Sambar stampeds tourists in Parikrama
Divya Bhaskar
Briefly translated from Gujarti

Few pilgrim tourists did their night hault at Bordevi on parikrama route yesterday night, a heard of Sambars came grazing near Bordevi. Forest department scared away the group but one of the animal came back and stemped on the sleeping people. At least five people were injured and taken to Junagadh hospital.

Kishore Kotecha's Comments :- Man – Animal conflict! But it is bound to happen if you enter someone's house. On side, as Girnar is declared as Sanctuary area lion count has reached about 35 and also equally have rised other wild animal population. Is Parikrama  whose route is through the sanctuary is advisible? Or should another Parikrama route be developed outside the sanctuary boundries?
