A leopard entered the Ghaziabad district court complex in Uttar Pradesh and attacked several people today. A video shared by news agency ANI on Twitter shows the big cat behind a window grille inside the court premises. A few lawyers are seen carrying an injured person, who appears to have been attacked by the leopard. The clip also shows another person with a bloodied face sitting against a wall and writhing in pain after being attacked. A huge crowd gathered at the court premise as the leopard caused panic among the people.

A joint operation was conducted by the police and the forest department to rescue the leopard. “Around six people have sustained injuries after being attacked by the animal, which is still on the court premises,” PTI quoted Assistant Commissioner of Police Abhishek Srivastav as saying.

The court complex lies in the Kavinagar area of Ghaziabad. Teams of police and forest department officials helped people who were stuck inside the court and vacated the premises.

In pictures and videos uploaded by users on social media, a man can be seen with a blood-stained shirt and a handkerchief wrapped around his wound. One of the videos shows a person sitting on the ground with bite marks on his arm while another man appeared to have suffered injuries on his head.

The incident has elicited several reactions from users on Twitter. “Too much encroachment by humans,” a person wrote.

Another user took the opportunity to highlight the longstanding problem of pending cases with the court. “Isko bhi Aagli tarik mili hogi (He also must have got another hearing date)” a user said referring to the leopard.

One user suggested that the leopard entered the court as he is left with no habitat.

In December last year, a leopard killed a 20-year-old man in Jharkhand’s Garhwa district. The person, identified as Harendra Nayak, was returning from his uncle’s house in Kushwaha village in the evening when he was attacked by the big cat, according to a forest officer. The official informed that the leopard pounced on the neck of the boy, who died on spot. This was the fourth such incident in the last 20 days, he added.
