Buddhist monk killed in leopard attack in Chandrapur

Nagpur, Dec 12 (UNI) A 35-year-old Buddhist monk was killed by a leopard while he was meditating under a tree at Ramdegi forest in Chandrapur district of Maharashtra.
The incident occurred on Tuesday morning at around 1000 hrs when the monk Rahul Walke was meditating under a tree deep inside the forest in the east Maharashtra district, located at 150 km from here, police said here on Wednesday.
The tree is located some distance away from a historical Buddhist temple in the forest and Walke had been meditating at the spot for the past one month, they said.
"Two monks used to visit Walke with food since last one month," sources said.
The sources further said that forest officials had warned the monks about danger of wild animals around the spot.
Walke's body has been recovered from the spot.
Following the leopard attack, the forest officials have cordoned off the area and are allowing visitors to the historical temple during stipulated hours only, sources said.
A solar fencing is being put around the temple premises to ward off threat of wild animals, they added.
