NEWSLINK: Ban on river sand mining delays plan to relocate tigers in Rajasthan’s Mukundra

The state forest department has deferred its plans to introduce tigers in the Mukundra Hills Tiger Reserve (MHTR), at least till February. Reason: The ban on mining of river sand in Rajasthan.
River sand, used in construction projects, is not available due to the mining ban. As a result, the department is not able to complete the construction of fence around the reserve to prevent human and cattle intrusion.
