Eyewitnesses have confirmed that leopard is not an adult. "We have seen that it is not too big .. more like a cub. However, it has proved to be dangerous and has so far eluded would-be-captors," said an eyewitness.

One of the injured persons, Prabin Haloi, is severely injured. He has been shifted to the Ayursundra Hospital.

Although several wildlife personnel have reached the area in a bid to fish out the animal, their efforts have been unsuccessful so far.
