The lion and the lioness have been kept under observation for two to three days to check any behavioural change in them.
In a bid to avert any such incident, the authorities will deploy more security men in and around the zoo, home to four lions, and install more CCTVs.
"We want to close the visibility part of the boundary wall of lion safari. Moreover, we want permanent security team near lion safari to monitor the vulnerable points," Sudhagarb said.
