Animal attack on human beings is increasing in Naharkatia area. While on Friday a woman was killed by a leopard, another youth was left grievously injured at Kopouhua village under Naharkatia police station in Dibrugarh district.
The dead woman has been identified as Makon Gogoi. The woman died when a stray leopard mauled her.
The increase in agricultural activity coupled with increased human interference in hitherto undisturbed areas has led to a greater human-animal conflict.
