A nine-year-old white tiger died of his injuries at Bannerghatta Biological Park near Bengaluru after an attack by Royal Bengal tigers on Sunday. 

Two white tigers, including the nine-year-old Shreyas, were injured on Sunday afternoon, after they sneaked through the gates separating them from the Royal Bengal tigers enclosure.

Another white tiger Amar is improving, who has injuries on his jaw and paw.
