A bear mauled an eight years old girl in Central Kashmir’s Jabdan area of Khansahab Budgam on Tuesday morning.
Police sources told a local news agency, CNS that a bear entered into the house of one Bilal Ahmed Dar during the wee hours and took along his 8 years old daughter Dilshada Banoo. Police said that Bear soon after taking the girl away in his mouth disappeared from the scene and all the attempts to locate the bear proved futile.
A few hours after police found the head of the girl lying in nearby forest while pieces of her body were found in scattered form at different places.
People alleged that despite repeated pleas to Wild Life Department to curb the movement of wild animals, no attention was paid by the department and these wild animals continue to roam freely without any interruption.
