As many as 22 people have been mauled to death by leopards in the area in the last five years, leaving Tallosorad residents worried. In view of the leopard terror, a 17-member police team equipped with arms has been mobilised to hunt down the killer cat.
“We have launched a search operation to trace the wild beast since Saturday,” said Inspector Kamal Bista.
