The Bharatiya Janata Party, which Gandhi belongs to, leads the state government.

The tigress is believed to be responsible for the deaths of 13 people over the last two years. Officials were able to determine a tiger killed the people by using DNA tests and discovering tiger saliva in the victims' wounds.

In September, the Supreme Court said she could be shot on sight, prompting a flurry of online petitions.

According to a letter written by the chief conservator of forests to principal conservator of forests A.K. Mishra, who had hired Khan, the hunter chose not to cooperate with forest department officials right from the beginning, and instead went on speaking to the media - despite orders that prohibited him to do so. City-based shooter Nawab Shafath Ali Khan's son Asghar Ali, a certified big game hunter and a big bore event champion, killed the beast. Gandhi said Shafat Ali Khan was "a criminal known for supplying guns to anti-nationals and for a suspected case of murder". Interestingly, the tigress was killed not by the man tasked to do so, but his son. The decision was challenged by animal rights activists in the Bombay high court, which disposed of the application seeking stay-against orders to shoot the tigress. Lawyer Tushar Mandlekar, who had moved the Supreme Court over the matter, demanded a probe by a special investigation team, reported the Hindustan Times. According to the forest department, Ali shot Avni in "self-defence" after she allegedly attacked him at about 11.45 pm in Borati-Warud area after a failed attempt to tranquillise her.

At the time, the petitioners told a bench of Justices Madan B Lokur and Deepak Gupta that if the tigress was shot dead, both her cubs would not be able to survive in the forest.

Avni was first spotted in the forests of Yavatmal in 2012. As she was hit, she was said to have charged the vehicle and another shot, fired from a distance of about 10 meters (33 feet) was fatal. "This ghastly murder has put two cubs at the edge of a sad death in the absence of their mother", she said. "When we plant trees, NGOs do not come forward and lend a helping hand", he said.

The villagers are banned by the government from grazing their cattle in the reserve and have been taking them into the forest because there is little fodder close to their homes, our correspondent says.

"We absolutely must ensure that Avni did not die in vain".
