Leopard kills man in Mumbai

June 22, 2004 14:32 IST

A leopard killed a 70-year-old man in a locality on the periphery of the Sanjay Gandhi National Park in Mumbai on Tuesday morning, police said.

Arjun Dadgu Waghe, who stayed at the Gaiganshah durgah in Adivasipada locality near the wildlife sanctuary, was attacked when he was sitting in front of the durgah, the police said.

His mutilated body was found 500 metres away from the durgah two hours later.

On June 19, a leopard killed Kuldeep Singh Gurbux, an advocate from Mulund Colony, when he had gone for a jog inside the national park.

Tuesday's incident marks the eighth killing of a human being in the national park, forest department authorities said.
