A leopard that mauled a minor girl to death at Ompora Housing Colony last week was reportedly spotted inside the premises of the Deputy Commissioner Budgam’s office last night, officials said.
Quoting the officials, news agency reported that the leopard was spotted by locals and security forces inside DC office premises and they immediately called the Wildlife officials.
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 at least four hours.
He said that footprints of the leopard have matched with the one spotted at Ompora Housing Colony where the girl was taken by the big cat and mauled to death in nearby forest nursery. ( KNO )
