In a recent incident of human-leopard conflict in Nashik, a leopard attacked a four-year-old boy while he was returning home at night with his grandmother. The victim, Rudra Kiran Jadhav, was accompanied by his grandmother in Vadner Gate, Pimpalgaon Khamb, Nashik Road, around 8:00pm when the attack occurred.

According to information received, the leopard pounced on the boy from behind, causing panic and chaos. In a desperate attempt to rescue Rudra, his grandmother raised an alarm for help.

The incident was reported to the forest officials, who promptly responded by dispatching a team, including a forester and round staff from Nashik, to the location.
