The residents of Hindalco Colony were Panic-stricken after a few of the residents spotted a leopard in the forest behind the Hindalco plant it self.
A team of forest officials rushed to Hindalco campus and spoke to residents. They also sent for a team to lay a trap for the leopard. But till evening, there was no sign of the animal. However, the wildcat remains elusive.
The leopard was caught on the CCTV camera installed by Syndicate Bank. The bank is located in the factory’s residential colony. The CCTV footage is really not clear to clearly establish that its a leopard but it looks similar.
The colony residents, have been asked to stay indoors and this was announced by using speakers. Residents have been asked not the move about alone; but in groups and also the residents have been told not to let children outside.
A couple of years ago, a tiger was sighted in VTU and eventually it was killed.
