Girl killed in leopard attack, Karnataka government will give compensation of 15 lakhs to the family


In Mysuru, a college student was attacked by a leopard, due to which the student died. A forest official said on Saturday that the Karnataka Forest Department (KFD) has issued a ‘shoot-on-site’ order to kill the leopard that attacked the girl student.

Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Saturday announced a compensation of Rs 15 lakh to the family of the girl who lost her life in a leopard attack. A young girl was recently killed in a leopard attack in a village in Mysuru district in the state. After incidents of leopard attacks came to light in the capital Bengaluru and Mysuru, Bommai said he has directed the forest department to deploy teams to catch leopards that have entered urban areas and human settlements.

The Chief Minister said, ‘Compensation of Rs 15 lakh will be given to the families of those killed in the leopard attack. This is similar to the compensation given to the families of those who lost their lives due to wild elephants. The state government has taken animal attacks seriously. The chief minister said forest officials were trying to catch the leopard that killed a 22-year-old girl at Kebbegundi village in Narasipura taluk of Mysuru district. Bommai said, ‘We have taken serious note of leopard attacks on people. Especially in Bangalore and Mysuru. Forest officials have set traps to catch them. I have asked them to catch the animals alive and release them in the forest.

Shoot-on-site order issued

In Mysuru, a college student was attacked by a leopard, due to which the student died. A forest official said on Saturday that the Karnataka Forest Department (KFD) has issued a ‘shoot-on-site’ order to kill the leopard that attacked the girl student. But the ‘shoot-on-sight’ order will be followed only if the leopard is not caught by the authorities. Malathi Priya, Chief Conservator of Forests (CCF) of Mysore circle said that our aim is to trap the leopard and transfer it from here.

Two people died within a month

Priya said, ‘This order was given by the Karnataka Principal Chief Conservator of Forests (PCCF). Our first goal is to calm down the leopard, so we have a vet with us. If we fail to pacify and nab him, our officers will issue a ‘shoot-on-sight’ order. This order has been implemented by the Forest Department when two people have died in a leopard attack in Mysuru within a month.
