STAFF WRITER 20:11 HRS IST

New Delhi, Oct 20 (PTI) The leopard that was spotted yesterday for a brief in Alipur village in Outer Delhi remained elusive today, keeping forest officials and wildlife activists on their toes to find its whereabouts.

"We are trying to locate its position. There was no sighting, pugmarks or kills in the adjacent areas where it was last spotted by the villagers," Kartick Satyanarayan, honorary wildlife warden and co-founder of SOS Wildlife, an NGO said.

A farm owner had yesterday spotted the wild cat in Alipur area at around 10 am and informed police and forest officials, which started a search for the endangered animal in the locality.
