A five-year-old girl was killed by a leopard in the town of Shimla, a senior forest official said.
The girl was taken by the leopard from Shimla’s Kanlog site to a nearby forest area around 8:30 a.m. Thursday, Shimla Divisional Forest Officer (wildlife) Krishan Kumar said.
The Divisional Forest Officer said her body was found near a nullah (drainage channel) about 200-250 meters from where she was attacked.
The girl’s father, Manoj, is a worker from Bihar.
