Times of India


RAJKOT: A three-year-old girl miraculously escaped from the clutches of a leopard in Deda village of Veraval taluka in Jungadh district. Kruti Barad was going to answer nature's call with her mother Viduben around 9 pm when a leopard came and pounced on the child. It caught her by the neck, but soon released as the mother started screaming for help.


"Seeing people coming, the leopard left the girl and fled. Villagers immediately called 108 emergency service," Vijay Barad, a relative of the girl told TOI.


According to Veraval range forest officer K R Vaghasia, the girl was immediately sent to a hospital in Veraval for treatment. She was suffering from injuries on her neck and the chest. She was also referred to Junagadh for CT scan but is out of danger.


Villagers say the leopard has been seen near village since three days.
