As per the report, a group of elderly persons who were en route to a Yoga Centre first spotted the leopard which had climbed atop the boundary wall of MCL. Despite being rattled they clicked the photographs of the animal and intimated the Forest Department staff about the incident subsequently.
The incident took place around 5.30 AM, informed Baikuntha Bihari Sahu, one of the eyewitnesses.
While Forest staff reached the spot immediately to take stock of the situation the leopard went untraceable. Efforts are underway to find out the animal, informed Pratap Chandra Raul, Chhendipada Ranger.
