Bengaluru school closes after leopards spotted again near campustext_fields
Bengaluru: Two days after a leopard entered a private school near Varthur here, another one was on Tuesday spotted around the same school.
The Vibgyor school administration declared an off on Wednesday as a precautionary measure after big cats were spotted in the area late on Tuesday evening.
“I have confirmation of one leopard being spotted, but people residing in the area are saying they have spotted two in and around Vibgyor school,” a forest official said.
The big cat was spotted between 9.30 p.m. and 10 p.m. in the area, the official said.
“It is very difficult to carry out operations at night. Officials will launch operations in the morning to trap the wild beast,” he added.
The officials have asked the residents to lock the doors and windows of their homes, he said.
Meanwhile, the school has declared a holiday on Wednesday, the police said.
On February 7, a leopard entered Vibgyor school and injured three forest department personnel, including a veterinarian, before it was tranquilised after a day-long operation.
