Forest officials used tranquilizer guns and cages to overpower the leopard, which created panic in the secretariat complex. Employees were not allowed to enter the complex until the leopard was caught.
The leopard, understood to have belonged to the Indroba Park, might have lost its way and entered the secretariat building, forest officials told the media.
