Govt mulling increase in compensatn for lion attack victims
The state government is considering a proposal to increase the compensation granted to the kin of victims of lion attacks, Gujarat Forest Minister Mangu Patel told the state Assembly today. Patel was replying to a question asked on a recent death of a woman in lion attack near Gir sanctuary. "We are contemplating increase in the compensation amount for the victims of lion attacks," Patel said. Presently, state gives Rs 1 lakh. Last week, Sarojben Mohanbhai, a 45-year-old woman, was killed by a lion near Moruka village of Talala taluka, in Junagadh district. "The lion has been caught by the state forest officials and has been sent to Animal Care Centre in Sasan Gir," Patel said. The village is near Gir Sanctuary. Incidents of lion- attacks on humans and domestic animals have increased in the last few years.
