Sariska, in Rajasthan, has been one of the most famous national parks in India, especially for its tigers. However, it had lost every single one of its tiger population to poachers a decade ago. The revelation sent shock waves throughout India and abroad. After much discussions, apprehensions, arguments, legal battles, and interference from the Prime Minister, a few tigers were shifted from Ranthambhore to Sariska.
