A leopard that had strayed into the village of Wazirabad in north Delhi on Monday morning attacked at least five people, injuring several of them, according to officials. Atul Garg, the chief of Delhi Fire Service, said that the leopard was eventually saved.
Early in the morning, the leopard broke free from its solitary confines in a locked room on the terrace of a house in Jagatpur village, according to the officials. Social media videos showed people chasing the leopard while others fled in fear.

According to the Delhi Fire Service, information about the incident was received around 6.20 am and two fire tenders were sent to the spot. “With the help of the locals, the officials locked the leopard in a room. The injured were sent to a hospital,” Delhi Fire Service (DFS) chief Atul Garg said.

A resident reported that at 5.15 am, a PCR call was placed after the leopard was first seen at around 4.30 am. He claimed that it attempted to attack more than a dozen people, injuring a few of them.

The local police arrived at the scene and notified the forest department officials after receiving a call from Jagatpur village regarding the leopard breaking into a house, according to Deputy Commissioner of Police (North) M K Meena.

Mahender, Akash, and Rampal are the three individuals who have been identified by the police as the five injured victims of the leopard attack.

According to the DCP, seven forest department employees, a Delhi Fire Department team, and the local police are on the scene.

The village is encircled by jungle, but no fencing or other security measures are in place, according to a local.

A leopard was seen on December 1st, 2017, at Sainik Farms in South Delhi. Videos from the incident show the big cat ambling through the neighborhood’s lanes. The forest department believed it had returned to the Asola Bhatti Wildlife Sanctuary after it was last observed on December 6. A week later, a leopard in Alipur, north Delhi, was killed by a car that had struck it on National Highway 44 close to the Khatushyam temple.
