The forest department has started a search for a leopard that ventured into a densely populated area of Maharashtra's Thane city and attacked a stray dog there, an official said.

The leopard strayed into Patlipada area of the city on Sunday and attacked the dog near a powerhouse there, Thane's regional disaster management cell chief Santosh Kadam said.

Some residents alerted local authorities and raised safety concerns, following which the forest department launched a search, but the leopard is yet to be caught, he said.
