On Thursday, the tiger had killed two quarry workers in the area. The animal was tranquilised and then caged in an eight-hour operation. It didn't survive the wounds.
In the video that surfaced on the internet on Sunday, the animal is seen, cornered as an earth-mover approaches it.
The rakes then press down on the animal and officials run towards it with a net.
The wounded tiger was taken to the Nainital Zoo nearby for treatment. It died within hours, by late Thursday evening.
According to forest officials, the male tiger had also killed two other tigers in the area as it wanted to establish its dominance over a specific territory. "As the mating season is approaching, even the slightest human interference angers tigers," said Parag Madhukar Dhakate, Forest Conservator.
According to reports, the National Tiger Conservation Authority is sending a fact-finding team to district Ramnagar on Monday to find out why an earth-mover was used to capture a tiger.
The Bengal tiger, India's national animal, is on the list of endangered species on the International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List.
