On Sunday night, a man-eater leopard hunted a six-year-old girl when she was answering nature’s call near a garbage heap in the Shankar Tekdi area at Mulund. The leopard dragged Sanjana by throat and took her into the forest while her mother was a few steps away from the girl.
The residents immediately informed the forest officials and they themselves started the search operation of the kid but could not find her because of the dark. However, dead body of the girl was found in the morning.
Residents are threatened with this incident and has demanded that street lights and toilets should be made in the are so that no other falls prey to the big cat.
