The Rajasthan government has began a eight-point enquiry into the cases of missing tigers and hunting in Sariska park, an official said today.

The investigation, which is being carried out by a senior official of the rank of additional chief secretary, is focused on management failure in the tiger project, safety measures, violation of security and safety norms for wildlife animals among others, he said.

The government has also invited suggestions from public and experts for enhancing security of tigers, he added.
