Guwahati: An Assam Engineering College (AEC) student was attacked by two full-grown leopards on Friday evening while he was on his regular walk.
The victim has been identified as Debabrat Chutia- a civil engineering third-semester student.
Hearing his screams, several other hostellers went for his aid and fought back the two leopards in retaliation and killed one of the two full-grown leopards.
“Chutia, a boarder of Hostel 5, was on his regular evening walk when out of nowhere he was attacked by a leopard,” said one of his hostel mates.
“The leopards attacked him from behind and injured his forearms and back,” they added.
“Leopards from the nearby forests keep entering the hostel premises quite often. We have been requesting the authorities for constructing high raised walls and make the campus more secure,” the students added.
Later the locals as well as few students killed the leopard creating a hue and cry among the people who had gathered to see the dead leopard.
