The carcass of a full-grown Royal Bengal tiger was found on a sand isle of the Brahmaputra to the north of the core area of the Kaziranga National Park (KNP) on Sunday.

A senior park official said the carcass would be sent for post-mortem on Monday.

A team of park officials, a veterinarian and an NGO worker would reach the location on Monday for a detailed investigation, the official said.
