Aurangabad, Feb 9 (PTI) Five people were injured in Maharashtra's Jalna district after a hyena went on an attacking spree in several villages on Saturday morning, a forest department official said.

The injured hail from Pimpalgaon Kolte, Talegaon, Khandala and Deulgaon villages in Bhokardhan tehsil of Jalna, some 90 kilometres from here, and have been admitted in a government hospital in Aurangabad, Forest Officer Shrikant Itlod told PTI.
