It is not the only case of a leopard attack that has taken place recently.
In June, a four-year-old girl named Ada Yasir Mir was mauled to death by a wild leopard that attacked her brother’s birthday party in northern India.
A minor boy was saved by the locals when a leopard dragged him away from near his house in Goregaon.
