A four-year old girl was mauled to death by a leopard in Budgam district of Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday evening, said the police.
The four year old girl was playing just outside her house and the parents rushed out as they heard a scream but she was nowhere to be found. Roughly one hour later , local residents found the girl’s necklace and slippers from the forest that surrounded the colony. “This raised the suspicion that the girl was taken away by a leopard , which is common in the area,” said Ehsan Fazil, a neighbour.
“After receiving the information , a police team , locals and the wildlife department constituted various teams to trace the girl. After massive searchers , the teams recovered the mauled body of the girl from the nearby forest nursery. Preliminary investigation suggests that the girl had been attacked and mauled by some wild animals, said the senior superintendent of the police.
