The spot where the body of the tigress, about two-and-half years old, was found, is in the Budni territorial forest about 10 kms from the Ratapani Wildlife Sanctuary. According to a forest department official the accident occurred at night.The busy North-South railway track that passes through Bhopal and Nagpur cuts through this forest and the wildlife Sanctuary.

There is a proposal to convert Ratapani Sanctuary into a Tiger Reserve. Tigers from Ratapani have been spotted on the southern periphery of Bhopal on a number of occasions. A Ratapani Tiger that was seen roaming  near the National Judicial Academy campus  was electrocuted and killed by poachers a few years ago (2012). They had put a live electricity wire in the water hole.
