Eight new cheetahs have been introduced to Kuno National Park in Madhya Pradesh, all the way from Namibia, in a bid to resurrect the big cat's population in the nation after it went extinct 70 years ago.

The eight cheetahs were formally released into the Indian wild on Saturday after a highly publicised event that took place in special enclosures in the park. Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

According to a story, Modi gave one of the cats the name "Asha," which is Hindi for "hope."

The name has special significance as India sets out on a mission to return cheetahs to the wild, which will also help to preserve and safeguard the ecosystem.
