Press Trust of India  |  Jammu 

A 13-year old girl was mauled to death by a leopard in Jammu and Kashmir's Reasi district, the police said today.

The incident occurred last night at Dhok Kataji in Mahore tehsil when Shahida Parveen (13), the daughter of Mohammad Fareed, was attacked by the big cat, which dragged her away from the compound of her house and killed her, said a senior police officer.

As the family members of the girl raised an alarm, the villagers went after the leopard, the officer said, adding that the body of the victim was subsequently found by them late at night.
