Tribal people, who authorities say relocated voluntarily for a tiger reserve in India, were "forcibly evicted," a report published on Thursday said.

Jenu Kuruba, a honey-gathering indigenous tribe of India, have been accusing the authorities of evicting them from the forest area that has been their home for generations.

But the government has claimed that the members of the indigenous tribe relocated voluntarily from what is now the Nagarhole Tiger Reserve in the southern Indian state of Karnataka in 1999.
