Watch: The Controversial Shifting of Ranthambore's Ustad

Ranthambore's 'man-eater' Ustad aka T24 was moved 400 kms away from his home in a controversial decision. On May 8, this 9-year-old tiger killed a forest guard near the entrance of the park, which led to the forest department shifting him out to an enclosed area near Udaipur. The forest department said that the decision was taken as this was Ustad's fourth human kill. But this has created uproar among tiger lovers who frequent the park, with allegations that the action was unfair to brand Ustad as a man eater. NDTV's Gargi Rawat goes on the trail of a tiger whose fate is being debated by forest officials, wildlife experts and the Rajasthan High Court.
