More than 100 schools have been closed in Bangalore after reports that another leopard was sighted on the outskirts of the Indian city.

Residents were asked to stay indoors and Police and forest officials were trying to track the elusive cat.

A male leopard entered a city school on Sunday (07) and injured six people who tried to capture it.

A scientist and a forestry employee were among those mauled during the 10-hour-long effort to corner the animal.

The latest sighting was reported by a construction worker on Wednesday at Nallurhalli, near Whitefield area.

“We have formed teams of forest and police officials who are moving around the area but there is no sign of any leopard or its marks,” Karnataka’s Chief Wildlife Warden Ravi Ralph said.

On Thursday (11), authorities ordered 129 schools, including 53 Government schools, to remain shut.
