The department said that there are three leopards in the area that are attacking the people in the colony. The cub that was rescued is not one of them. The rescued leopard cub has been sent to Sanjay Gandhi National Park.

The department has set up four cages to capture the three leopards that are attacking the people in the area.

"Four cages were set up at Aarey Colony on Thursday evening in an identified spot to catch the leopards that are attacking the people in the area," said the department.
