Panther scare haunts

Panther scare still haunts officials in the ONGC base complex and the general public in the city. The forest officials trap-ped a panther on May 31 on the base complex after trailing it for nearly five days when it was spotted for the first time on May 27 and released it in Maredumilli forests. Some people reportedly noticed the pug marks of a panther and a cub near children's park at Kendriya Vidyala in the ONGC base complex and alerted the ONGC security staff who in turn informed the forest authorities about the development.
