Vice-president Hamid Ansari, who arrived in Sasan Gir in Junagadh district on a two-day visit on Sunday, saw 27 lions during his two-and-a-half-hour visit to the jungle. Ansari and his wife Salma while in the Asiatic lion's last abode, visited Kumbharni, Paniyali and other ranges in the forest on Sunday evening.

Forest officials said Ansari was delighted on seeing the pride of lions and described the tour as a memorable one for him. He was welcomed by Gujarat's finance minister Vajubhai Vala upon his arrival at Rajkot airport. He received a warm welcome from state tourism minister Jaynarayan Vyas when he reached Sasan Gir at around 12:30 pm on Sunday in a helicopter.
