GUWAHATI, Nov 14: A leopard kept an entire locality in Dibrugarh on the edge after entering a house in Paltan Bazar locality of the town besides injuring one person today.
The early morning calm at Paltan Bazar in the tea town was suddenly disrupted after the leopard entered the residence of a person named Mehtab Ahmed. The big cat, people said, first entered the drawing room around 9 am and then made its way to the kitchen.
Incidentally, the cat attacked a person named Ammamuddin Ahmed while it was creeping into the kitchen. The leopard attacked Ammamuddin on his face and scalp as people saw him come out of the house, bleeding profusely.
He was rushed to a nearby hospital where he is receiving treatment.
The leopard also killed a cat inside Mehtab Ahmed’s house.
“I was not at home when the leopard made its way into the house. He attacked Ammamuddin when he went in to inquire what had gone inside our house,” the owner of the house said.
The leopard was later tranquilised by a team of wildlife experts that was specially called in from Kaziranga.
