On 26 December, at least 15 people, including three forest officials, were injured in a series of attacks by a leopard on Rain Forest Research Insitute (RFRI) in Assam’s Jorhat District.
In a video captured by forest officials, the leopard is seen moving around the campus. Another video shows the leopard jumping over a barbed wire fence and attacking a four-wheeler.
The RFRI is located on the outskirts of Jorhat surrounded by forests and the leopard is believed to have interfered with the campus from there.
Attempts are being made to capture the leopard and tranquilize it, officials said, adding that the residents have been advised to remain indoors.
The injured were admitted to the hospital and their ailment was reported to be stable, they added.
