A leopard that has been unleashing a reign of terror in Eastern Assam’s Dibrugarh district attacked two more persons on Sunday severely injuring them at Tingkhong in the district.
The injured have been identified as Lalit Dhadumiya and Khireswar Dhadumiya of Kuworigaon in Tingkhong.
They were reportedly attacked while they went near the forest areas to collect firewood and fodder.
The injured were later rescued by the locals and have been sent to the Assam Medical College and Hospital in Dibrugarh for further treatment after administering first aid.
The forest officials are currently trying to trace the leopard.
It may be recalled that earlier in the month of September two persons were attacked by a leopard at Sassoni Meerbeel under Naharkatiya police station in Dibrugarh district.
They were identified as Jitu Lahon and Bhupen Bora of Sassoni village.
According to local people, the leopard has been wreaking havoc for the past few months and the forest department has failed to tranquilize it.
