According to reports, the villagers killed the leopard, while the injured person was transported to a nearby hospital.On 20 January, due to the threat posed by the free movement of a stranded Royal Bengal Tiger, the District Magistrate of Sonitpur district has prohibited public movement during the night hours in the Borsola area of Dhekiajuli circle in Sonitpur district, in accordance with Section 144 CrPC, to protect human life and domestic animals.

Last year in Dillibari, Assam's Dibrugarh district, villagers had killed a full-grown leopard and feasted on its meat. Before being killed, the leopard had hurt five people in the nearby Charaideo area.
The leopard was terrorizing the locals in Charaideo district's Sapekhati's Atal Randhali hamlet for several months, according to the villagers.
"The leopard killed five people in the vicinity, injuring them, and stealing cattle." After crossing the Disang, the leopard entered Dillibari, and the locals were terrified to leave their homes after dusk," a villager stated.
