Santosh Kumar, Director is the Park, told NDTV that nine-year-old Shreyas died around 8 pm on Wednesday evening. The tiger had been showing signs of improvement and park authorities had been hopeful of his recovery.
The white tigers, a pigmented variation of the Royal Bengal tiger, were set upon by two other tigers when the gate between their enclosures was left open at the tiger safari.
C Jayaram, Additional Chief Principal Conservator of Forests, Wildlife said, "It is basically a mishap. While closing the gates there was some lack of coordination. They have entered into the same enclosure, there was a fight. And immediately they have separated them treated the tigers."
The second tiger that was injured was not as badly hurt as Shreyas and is doing well.
The Bengal tiger, India's national animal, is on the list of endangered species on the International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List.
