The Uttarakhand High Court has ordered a CBI probe into the death of tigers at the Corbett Tiger Reserve in the last five years. 
The court also asked the CBI to find out the involvement of forest officers in the poaching of tigers. 
     
 A division bench of the high court comprising Acting Chief Justice Rajiv Sharma and Justice Lokpal Singh ordered an inquiry into the death of tigers in the park. The direction came after the court was told that out of nine tiger deaths in the past only six were natural deaths.
       

The court further observed that in a period of two and a half years 40 tigers and 272 leopards have died in the state.  The court also instructed the Director General of Police to constitute a Special Investigation Team headed by Senior Superintendents of Police to nab the poachers.
