Forest officials said that two of the victims had received most injuries on legs, while one was seriously injured. The injured are Rajbha Jhala, 25, Vallabh Butani, 55, and Jenti Kapuriya, 45. Jhala was dragged by the lioness to the village outskirts. Two of the three are farmers and one a cowherd.
After the incident, senior forest officials and trackers have been camping in the area to cage the lioness and release it later into the wild far from human habitation. Forest officials said that somehow the lioness was irritated and thus attacked the villagers. After the attack, the two injured in the fields were immediately attended by emergency services and villagers, while the third victim was traced to a small culvert nearby, where he was battling for his life. The rescuers found the lioness perched on a small mound around 500 metres from the victim. Ultimately, 108-EMRI staff and villagers managed to drive off the lioness, rescue the victim and send him to Junagadh.
108-EMRI officials said they had received the rescue call at 9.08am and a team including Sahil Ratapiya, Sohil Dhaduk and Bharat Jhala had reached the spot. Villagers informed them of the third victim who was seriously injured and lying near the outskirts of the village.
He added that one of the injured had told 108-staff that they had been working in the field when the lioness attacked. https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/ahmedabad/lioness-mauls-3-in-a-village/articleshow/62110775.cms
