Bengaluru: As a precautionary measure, the Karnataka government on Thursday asked the schools to remain closed for today, in the wake of leopard attack incident.
Around 130 schools have been asked by the authorities to remain shut.
Two days after a leopard entered Vibgyor Public School in the city and injured five, another one was on Tuesday spotted around the same school.
The wild cat was spotted Tuesday night between 9.30 pm and 10 pm in the area.
However, some people of the area told a forest official that they have spotted two leopards in and around the private school.
The government officials have asked citizens to lock their houses properly and remain alert.
A male leopard was on Sunday tranquilised and trapped after it quietly entered a private school in the city and injured five people.
As the school was closed on Sunday, barring a couple of security guards, hundreds of students and faculty were lucky to have escaped a ferocious attack by the eight-year-old leopard.
School authorities had immediately informed forest officials and police who rushed to the spot.
The feline was tranquilised by the forest officials and taken to Bannerghatta Biological Park.
