An unexpected and unwanted guest entered at Maruti Suzuki’s plant and brought production to a break on this morning. As a leopard entered in the plant, the morning shift workers were advised not to enter the complex. “A seven-member team is on the job. They are equipped with a tranquilizer to calm the leopard down and rescue it,” said Vinod Kumar, Gurgaon’s wildlife conservator.
The Times of India reported that the animal was spotted in the factory around 4 am. At that time, the plant’s security guards and transport department staff were present when the leopard came into the plant. On the other hand, the night shift workers were instantly directed to empty the premises in order to avoid any mishap, the sources said. “We are unable to spot the leopard as the plant’s main processing unit is in the basement, which is dark. Our teams are using torchlight and taking help of the CCTV footage,” Kumar added. The DSP (South), Ashok Bakshi, said, “Police rushed to the spot as soon as we received the information. The premises were immediately evacuated and we have sealed the area. Rescue operation is on and over 100 cops have been deployed at the spot.”
