A leopard sneaked into a school near Whitefield in Bengaluru attacking people who came in its way. Two people were injured in the high drama that took place at the Vibgyor High School in Marathahalli. Dramatic video footage showed the scared big cat running aimlessly in the school premises. Forest officials who tried to tranquilise the leopard were attacked. Thankfully, it was a Sunday and students of the school were at homes enjoying their weekly holiday.

The security official of the school suspected that a leopard had broken into the school premises. CCTV footage showed the leopard skulking through the corridors of the school building. Therefore, a call was made to the forest department. A team of forest officials arrived at the school and scoured it to trap the big cat. It took them 10 hours to finally catch the leopard. The animal was then released into the wilds.

The feline looked terrified apparently by the presence of people surrounding it and went on an attacking spree. It pulled down a forest official who was trying to climb a fence to escape. The leopard was seen attacking him again by a swimming pool. The man somehow manages to free himself from the leopard’s clutches. A few shots of tranquiliser darts were fired at the wild animal and it was seen running away towards a changing room where the animal collapsed.

Forest officials waited for an hour to confirm that the leopard was transquilised completely. Then they covered the animal with a net and took it away to the rescue centre.

Principal Chief Conservator of Forests (Wildlife) Ravi Ralf told The Hindu newspaper that it was an 8-year-old full-grown male leopard and is being kept for treatment and observation at the rescue centre of the Bannerghatta Biological Park. A call on its relocation will be taken by the forest department.

Sunny Leone praised on social media, journalist Bhupendra Chaubey scorned over interview- Best Tweets

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

SunnyLeone_BhupendraChaube

Sunny Leone handled misogyny and condescension with grace and charm. Well done lady @SunnyLeone

ALSO READ: AAMIR KHAN HAPPY TO WORK WITH SUNNY LEONE

That Bhupender Chaubhe interview with Sunny Leone is despicable. “WHY DON’T YOU ASCRIBE TO MORAL STANDARDS OF INDIAN HOUSEWIVES????”

If you’re willing to go beyond the media stereotypes, you’ll notice that Sunny Leone is actually very pretty.

Of all Indians, I guess @bhupendrachaube was more disappointed that Sunny Leone made a career in Bollywood. He misses her on his laptop

Sunny Leone has much more dignity and class than people like Bhupendra Chaubhey ever will.

Mr @bhupendrachaube you started the interview by saying “I was trying to do some research”, how many videos of Sunny Leone did you see?

Dear stupid Journalist, Sunny Leone is a human being & she has feelings too..STFU

The Sunny Leone video which everyone should watch. Probably her best performance till date.

Sunny Leone comes across as far more graceful, interesting and intelligent than 99% of Indian journalists who interview her.

The one good thing about journos being awful to sunny leone is that they make her grace and poise even more starkly evident in contrast

Those who mock, judge and treat Sunny Leone dismissively stand naked and exposed.

Sunny Leone thanked her fans for the love and support in a video.

WATCH: Chris Gayle hits fastest 50 in Big Bash League

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Chris Gayle

Chris Gayle has smashed a 12-ball-50 to equal Yuvraj Singh’s record of the fastest half century in a T20 game. Yuvraj Singh had set the record of the fastest 50 in Twenty20 in the 2007 World Cup against England in Durban. Yuvraj had smashed 6 sixes in an over of Stuart Broad in the match.

Gayle hit 7 sixes and 2 fours for Melbourne Renegades before he was dismissed for 56 off 17 balls in the semi final of the ongoing Big Bash League in Australia.

SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO

Melbourne Renegades needed 171 runs in 16 overs against Adelaide Strikers to qualify for Big Bash T20 league final. And Gayle started by hitting four consecutive sixes in Greg West’s first over. He reached his 50-run mark in the fourth over of Renegades’ innings.

The West Indies opener also holds the record for the fastest T20 century in the Indian Premier League. Chris Gayle had scored 100 in just 30 balls in the 2013 edition of the IPL while playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore.

In spite of Gayle’s blistering half century, Renegades lost the semi-final and and crashed out of the Big Bash League. The Melbourne team fell 27 runs short of their target of 171

Chris Gayle was met with raucous applause by the crowd of 25,227 people in the Etihad Stadium as he walked off raising his bat after his dismissal. This could be the Jamaican’s farewell match if Cricket Australia decides not to welcome him back in the next edition of the cricket league.
