A tiger cub which had been abandoned by its mother died at Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve (BTR) in Madhya Pradesh, an official said on Saturday.

The cub, around five months old, was being treated in an enclosure inside the reserve after it was found.

It died Friday evening, BTR director Vincent Rahim said.

"The cub had been abandoned by tigress T-5. A patrolling party found it alone and starving on August 11 in Magdhi range," he said.

"We put it in enclosure. Our vet Dr Nitin Gupta and we tried our best but could not save it," Rahim added.
