INDIA. Budgam. A leopard who mauled a 4-year-old girl to death was spotted on the intervening night of Tuesday and Wednesday inside the deputy commissioner’s office complex in Central Kashmir’s Budgam district.
Sources confirmed that the leopard was spotted by locals and security forces inside DC office premises and they immediately called the wildlife officials.
Meanwhile, an official of the wildlife department told that a team of the department reached the spot within no time. However, they couldn’t locate the leopard after searching it for more than four hours.
He said that the footprints of the leopard matched with the one spotted at the Ompora housing colony.
“Footprints were the same we found at the Ompora housing colony and we have deployed the staff at every hotspot to eliminate this man-eater leopard,” he added.
Earlier on 3rd June, a four-year-old girl was mauled to death by the leopard after she was taken away by the man-eater from her home in the Ompora Housing Colony in Budgam.
