Indrageets frustration boiled over one day while ferrying visitors on a ‘tiger show’. He pushed Chanchal Pyari, and she fell heavily onto my jeep while offloading my terrified passengers, as I ducked under the wheel. The jeep never recovered, but more sadly, nor did Chanchal Pyari, who died from internal injuries soon afterwards.
