Jaipur: A lioness of Nahargarh Biological Park, popularly known as Srishti, has not been spotted in the past 24 hours.

The lioness was released into the lion safari area, but she hasn’t returned to her enclosures for food. The forest department officials have launched a search for her in the lion safari area spread over 28 hectares.

There is tall grass in the area due to the monsoon and the lioness might be hiding in it, a forest department official said.

There are many residential colonies in the close vicinity, so the officials want to trace the lioness at the earliest possible.

The lioness Srishti and lion, Tripura, are spotted by tourists in the lion safari area in Nahargarh Biological Park. For the last 24 hours, Tripura was spotted alone. There is no trace of the lioness. Since Sunday evening, the forest department team intensified the search for Srishti.

The lioness is one-and-a-half years old. She was brought to Jaipur from Junagadh in Gujarat under the Animal Exchange Program. Srishti has become the pride of Nahargarh Biological Park in Jaipur. A large number of tourists from Jaipur as well as nearby areas visit Nahargarh Biological Park to see the lioness.
