Bhopal, May 30 -- One more cheetah has been successfully released into the wild at Madhya Pradesh's Kuno National Park (KNP), nearly eight months after she was brought to India, an official said. She was kept in "hunting enclosures" at the park.

"Neerva, a three-and-a-half-year old female cheetah from South Africa, was released into the wild from a larger enclosure at the KNP late on Sunday," said KNP field director Uttam Kumar Sharma.

On September 17 last year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi released the first batch of eight cheetahs from Namibia into a quarantine enclosure at KNP, as part of an effort to revive the species' population in India. Later, 12 cheetahs were brought to the national park from South Africa on February 18 this year...
