- Head and torso of children found separately
- Forest department asked people to be alert
- Due to the dreaded leopard, people’s life is haram
Leopard has killed two children in Uttar Pradesh. There is silence in the area due to his fear. Officials of the Katarniaghat Wildlife Sanctuary said that the bodies of the children have been recovered. However, due to the non-capture of the leopard, there is an atmosphere of fear in the surrounding areas. The people of the forest department are investigating about this.
A forest department official said that two children were killed in separate cases in the villages near the Katarniaghat Wildlife Sanctuary (KWS). The half-mutilated bodies of the children were recovered on Tuesday after a massive search operation by the local people along with the forest team and the police.
Divisional Forest Officer (DFO) Akash Deep Badhawan said that on Monday evening, a leopard attacked 9-year-old Ramtej from village Rikkha Pakadiya Diwan of Motipur police station area and dragged him into the forest. A joint team of police and forest department searched the adjoining forest on Tuesday and found a half-cut body in the bushes in Ghusri of Motipur forest area.
In the second attack, 4-year-old Aditya, a resident of Jhala village under Matera police station area, was attacked by a leopard on Monday evening, who had come to his maternal uncle’s house in Magalapurwa village. The DFO said that only the boy’s head could be recovered on Tuesday from a distance of about two kilometers from the place where the leopard had attacked on Tuesday.
It is not yet known whether the attack was carried out by a single leopard or by two leopards. A wildlife expert said it was unlikely that the same leopard would attack within a few hours. Locals have been asked not to go out during the night and go out in groups.
World Wildlife Fund (WWF) executive officer Dabir Hasan said compensation of Rs 10,000 has been provided to both the families and further assistance will be provided by the forest department after the findings of the postmortem report. The Forest Department has also started preparations for setting up cages to catch leopards.
