The Forest Department's petrol parties began to add the area and his clothes and sandals seemed to be dipped in blood near a bridge and found to be closer to the damaged body. Senior forest officials, including director of the Rajaji Tiger Reserve, rushed to the scene and sent body for post mortem examination, an official said.
