Leopard Kills Monk Meditating In Forest

A monk meditating in a forest in the Indian state of Maharashtra has died in a leopard attack, it has been reported.

But it said here are now plans to capture the animal.

Rahul Walke had been “meditating under a tree” in the Tadoba forest, which is a protected tiger reserve,  the BBC quoted officials as telling PTI news agency.

Walke had been attached to a Buddhist temple which is inside the forest, but he had walked to a spot quite far away from it to meditate.

Forest officials said they had warned the monks against going too far inside.

“I would like to tell everyone not to go inside the forest,” GP Narawane, a forest official, told BBC Marathi.

State government officials have said they will give the family of the deceased 1.2m rupees ($16,762; £13,280).
