Leopard strikes panic in Maharashtra village

Panic loomed among the residents of Ballarpur village in Maharashtra on Monday after a leopard hid on the rooftop of a house and on being found, ran amok, bringing back the horrors of man-animal conflict. A leopard strayed into a human settlement in Chandrapur district scaring the residents and forcing them to run helter-skelter to save their lives. It attacked another resident while people tried to corner it. No injuries have been reported in the incident. Meanwhile, the animal, itself scared, ran into the bathroom of a hut to hide from the crowd.
