A leopard which had strayed into DSB International school in Rishikesh on Tuesday was rescued by the forest department. A departmental employee was injured during the rescue operation and was taken to AIIMS Rishikesh for treatment. According to the department officials, a leopardess aged about three years strayed into the school on Tuesday morning. The school was empty due to the state-wide lockdown. The locals informed the forest department about this. Initial attempts to trap the leopard were not successful and also resulted in one employee sustaining injury. The leopard was then tranquilised and rescued out of the school. The Haridwar divisional forest officer Akash Verma said that leopardess was taken to the Chidiyapur rescue centre. Though her condition is normal, the leopardess is being kept under observation.
