Talking to the media, Kiran said, ‘I saw the leopard picking up my son. I quickly ran after the leopard and chased it for about 1 km. The leopard was holding my son in his mouth. Chasing me, I started lashing the leopard with sticks. The miscreant had to run away leaving my child in the middle as many people came out of their homes after hearing my voice. I had to show courage otherwise I would never get my child back.’
