Chotila is a famous pilgrimage center and is surrounded by forest, where leopards are found.
The leopard was reportedly caught by forest officials.
Gujarat, the home state of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has witnessed a number of incidences of man-animal conflict in the recent past. Only last month, a man-eater leopard was caged by forest officials after it reportedly devoured three women in the Dahod district. In the same month, a leopard entered the Gujarat Secretariat campus, disrupting the bureaucratic hub's functioning for almost half a day.
