The villagers tried to save Sagar from the leopard, the officials said, adding that his body was later recovered in the night.
The incident led to protests by the locals who alleged inaction on the part of the forest department even after three similar incidents in as many days in the area.
World Wildlife Fund (WWF) project officer Dabeer Hasan said the leopard's movement was detected in the area 15 days ago.
This region is regarded as a man-animal conflict-prone zone since leopards are present here in good numbers, he said.
Hasan said the forest department staff and NGOs have been apprising locals to remain vigilant.
The forest department will install three cages today to catch the leopard and tranquilisers will be used if required, he said.
