Thirty-year-old Masum has been admitted to Sharankhola Upazila Health Complex

A man has survived a fight with a Royal Bengal Tiger in the Sundarbans.

Thirty-year-old Masum—son of Abdul Jalil of Uttor Rajapur village—was admitted to Sharankhola Upazila Health Complex on Wednesday, with injuries all over his body.

Masum's brother, Zahidul Haoladar, said they received permission from Dhansagor station to venture down the Shela river—through the Sundarbans—on a boat, to catch fish, around 9am on Wednesday, reports UNB.

While travelling, the 10-foot tiger attacked Masum. 

Witnessing the attack, Zahidul, along with four fishermen, chased the tiger. Zahid hit the tiger with a stick, forcing it to flee from the scene and hide in the forest.

At a point, the fishermen took him to Sharankhola Health Complex where the on-duty doctor, Ripon Nath, said Masum's injuries were not fatal and he was out of danger.

According to Divisional Forest Officer Md Mahamudul Hasan of Sundarbans East Division, tigers have claimed 35 lives between 2001 and 2018, in the forest.
