A leopard entered the Maruti Suzuki’s Manesar plant on Thursday morning following which police and forest officials cordoned off the premises and launched a search operation, the police said.

A security personnel found the leopard roaming inside the Engine Department of the plant at around 4 am.

Due to precautionary reasons, the workers who arrived for the morning shift at 7 am, were told to stand outside of the plant, a senior police officer said.

“Teams of forest department, police and wildlife have been called to catch the leopard. We have cordoned off the plant and a search operation is on to catch the animal.  However, we are yet to trace it”, the officer added.

In April this year, a leopard entered a house in Sohna in the district and left five persons injured.
