Saun, who was mentally unstable, lived near a water tank in the forest, he said.

The body has been sent for post-mortem, he said.

“This is the first incident of man-animal conflict in our range this year. In a similar incident, a woman was killed by a leopard in the same jungle in September last year while returning from a fair.
