    At least 13 people were injured in Duliajan township of upper Assam's Tinsukia district by a leopard on Sunday. Senior forest department officials said the leopard entered the Oil India Ltd's residential zone at around 7 am on Sunday and attacked an old person and four others who came to save him. Forest personnel from Doomdooma rushed to the spot and fired two capsules of tranquilisers at the animal. A huge crowd gathered at the spot and the leopard, which was yet to fall asleep due to the tranquiliser, attacked and injured at least eight others, including an army captain.
