The leopard eventually died of wounds sustain from villagers that fought the beast back with knives, stones and batons.
It injured six villagers, a policeman and four forest guards before being hit with a tranquilizer gun Tuesday. The cat died within hours, and a post mortem is being conducted. It happened near Siliguri, about 373 miles (600 kilometers) from Kolkata. The people are recovering from their injuries, mostly swipes from the cat's claws.
