The Principal Chief Conservator of Forests told me that on the morning of May 23, the dead body of Jchala had died. After this, the three surviving cubs and Jwala were continuously monitored by the doctors and monitoring team at Palpur. Since it was very hot on May 23, The temperature was around 46–47 degrees Celsius. In such a situation, seeing the unusual condition and heat of the three cubs, the team immediately decided to rescue them and give them treatment. But two cubs died. One cub is in critical condition. He is undergoing treatment at Palpur Hospital.

Constant advice is being sought from experts and doctors in South Africa and Namibia. Cheetah cubs just started roaming with their mother about 8–10 days ago. According to cheetah experts, the survival rate of cubs in Africa is extremely low. The post-mortem proceedings are being carried out as per standard protocol.
