Tourist’s body found

Rishikesh, April 16

The partially eaten body of a tourist, who had gone missing and was apparently attacked by a leopard, was found on Monday from near a temple in the Motichur range of Rajaji Tiger Reserve, police said. The deceased has been identified as 56-year-old Tek Chand from Haryana’s Palwal district, they said.

The injuries suggest Chand was killed by a leopard. Chand along with his elder brother and other family members had gone to Neelkanth on Sunday. 

On their way back, Chand went into the forests behind the Satyanrayan temple in Raiwala around 4 pm. When he did not return, his relatives informed the police and a search was launched. His partially eaten body was found from the forest behind the temple around 10.30 am on Monday. — PTI
