A three-year-old girl was mauled to death by a leopard in Gujarat’s Amreli district, a forest department official said Sunday.
The incident took place at Jeera village late at night on Saturday, in which the leopard dragged and killed the girl. Her half-eaten body parts were recovered later, the official said.
”Her mortal remains were found at some distance from the place where the leopard had dragged her. Efforts are on to nab the animal,” he said.
Two weeks ago, a one-year-old daughter of a farm laborer was similarly killed by a leopard in the same village.
