A five-year-old girl was killed by a leopard at Kodiya village in Unataluka ofJunagadh on Tuesday. Victim RavinaParadiya was playing in fields when she was dragged by the wild cat to the shrubs.

When her family members, who work as casual labourers in fields, ran after the animal, it dropped the girl and fled. However, by that time the girl had died. The girl's father, Madhubhai Paradiya, a resident of Sanvav village, had come to Kodiya village a couple of months back.

Forest department officials have, meanwhile, placed cages in the area to trap the leopard that has caused a scare. This the second instance in the district where a human was killed by a leopard in the last one week. Earlier, a leopard had killed a 75-year-old woman Moriben Parmar at Santha village on Sunday.
