Two lions, who had killed a person near Ambariya village in Amreli district last week, have been captured and sent to a separate enclosure at Sasan Gir, a forest department official said today.

"The two lions were caged on Monday from near the site of the incident," Assistant Conservator of Forest, N M Muni said.

"Both the lions were involved in killing the person. After being caged, they were sent to Sasan where they will be kept at an enclosure meant for man-eaters," he said.

Jinabhai Parmar, a cook working for labourers employed in an agricultural field, was dragged away by the lions when he was sleeping at a camp around 3 km away from the village on Sunday, Muni said.

Parmar's body parts were recovered from a shrub, around 100 metres from the camp, he added.
