Leopard kills 9-year-old girl
A nine-year-old girl was killed by a leopard on the outskirts of Ramgadh village near Savarkundla town in Amreli district on Friday.
According to forest officers, the animal attacked Vilas Koli, the daughter of farm labourer Popatbhai, when she was inside a make-shift tent at a field about 12 km from Savarkundla. Popatbhai was in the field when the leopard dragged his daughter away. Armed with a stick, he gave a chase and the animal dropped Vilas and disappeared. Vilas was rushed to the government hospital in Savarkundla and died. Savarkundla Range Forest Officer C B Dhandhiya said the family has been paid Rs 1 lakh compensation and the leopard has been caged. It has also been shifted to the animal care centre at Jashadhar in Gir.
