Bengaluru, Feb 8: A male leopard was on Sunday tranquilized and trapped after it quietly entered a private school in the city and injured five people, a wildlife official said.

"We got a call from Vibgyor Public School in the evening that a leopard had jumped over the compound wall and was seen on CCTV cameras passing through an empty classroom and entering a room with a mesh cover," chief wildlife warden Ravi Ralph told IANS.
