Budgam: Tragedy struck a quiet village in Budgam district of central Kashmir as a 6-year-old girl was snatched from her home by a leopard on Thursday evening.

 

According to sources speaking to KNO, the victim, identified as Toiba Mushtaq, daughter of Mushtaq Ahmad Khan, was taken from the lawns of her residence in the Hariwani area.
