"Our ground duty staffers during patrolling found the carcass of the cub in Karmajhiri range of PTR yesterday," the Reserve field director S Sen said today.
Prima facie it appears that the one-and a-half-year cub had died in a territorial fight as a tiger was seen near body, he said.
The field director said post-mortem of the cub suggests that it died due to the injuries it sustained to its neck.
Body of the animal was disposed of as per the directives of the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA), Mr Sen said.
