Yash Bhor, the victim, was walking outside his house at around 8.30pm when the incident occurred. It was dark outside, and he did not realise the presence of a leopard on a nearby farm. When the leopard suddenly attacked him, he shouted for help. After hearing commotion outside, his neighbour Sameer Bhor and other villagers rushed to help him, while the leopard escaped in the fields.

Sandesh Paril, assistant conservator of forest, Junnar division said, “The incident took place on Sunday night, and the boy suffered some minor injuries. However, the village where the attack happened falls into another jurisdiction, and hence I can’t comment on it.”
