GUWAHATI: Panic gripped the residents of Harmati located in Kaziranga as a Royal Bengal Tiger entered a house and was seen relaxing on the bed of the resident.
As per reports, the tiger had strayed from the nearby Kaziranga National Park which is submerged under floodwaters.
According to locals, the tiger entered the house of Rafikul at around 7 AM and was seen relaxing on his bed.
Meanwhile, veterinarian Dr. Samshul Ali and his team are on their way to tranquillise the tiger.
Forest officials have also arrived and preparations are on in full swing to relocate the tiger to a safer place.
