    New Delhi: A white tiger on Tuesday attacked and killed a schoolboy who appeared to have jumped or fallen into its enclosure at the zoo in Delhi, media reports said.

    "The boy seems to have leapt over the railing into the tiger enclosure. It was a white tiger that attacked," zoo manager Riaz Khan told AFP.

    "We are trying to find out who this boy was and why he did what he did. The police are here and they are investigating," he said.

    A witness said he raced to the tiger enclosure at the New Delhi zoo after hearing screams, to see the boy locked in the tiger's jaws, "writhing badly in pain".

    A news channel showed a photograph of the boy cowering inside the enclosure with the tiger standing inches away.

    "Around 1.30 pm, when we were in the reptiles area, we heard very loud screams," Himanshu, an eyewitness told the TV channel.

    "We saw some kids throwing in small sticks and stones inside the tiger enclosure."

    "Then we saw that a white tiger had caught a boy by his neck and he was writhing badly in pain.

    "He kept suffering for the next 10-15 minutes but nobody helped him."

    Himanshu said the railing of the tiger enclosure was "very low" and speculated that the boy may have fallen inside.

    "I called the police, the police came very quickly, but the guy couldn't be saved, he died."It was not immediately known what would happen to the animal.

    White tigers which are an endangered species are found in southern and eastern Asia, particularly India.
