Leopards have killed two persons and injured two others in the periphery of Sanjay Gandhi National Park in Mumbai since Sunday night.
Raju Yadav, 18, a resident of Aarey Colony in suburban Goregaon was killed when he was attacked by a leopard late on Sunday night, a senior police officer said.
Meanwhile, forest authorities and the police managed to tranquilise the leopard after trying for six-and-a-half hours from 12 noon, Sanjay Gandhi National Park sources said.
The first dart successfully put the leopard to sleep, but by the time authorities arranged resources to move it out, it woke up, sources said. The operation was completed at around 6.30 pm and the forest authorities took the special cage inside the SGNP, the sources added.
