The Times of India ,Hapur, 24th March 2014

 
A leopard cub was found dead in Babugarh of Hapur on Sunday between military and forest department ridge areas. Police said an unidentified vehicle reportedly hit the one year old animal after which it died. Cops have ruled out a case of hunting.

The body has been sent for autopsy. Hapur superintendent of police, MP Singh, said no one else was reported injured. We got information from local villagers about a wild animal lying in the area. Doctors and forest department officials later confirmed it to be a leopard, said Sanjay Kumar Panchal, police station incharge of Babugarh.

There were no external injury marks on the leopard`s body. Doctors conducting the cub`s postmortem told us that its rib might have broken resulting in its death," Panchal added.

Let alone the general public, even the cops and administration officials were shocked over the discovery of the leopard`s body. I have been serving in this police station for the last three years and no leopard has been spotted in the area till now. We have beefed up security," Panchal added.
