The leopard made its way inside the Chief Judicial Magistrate's court on the first floor of the Ghaziabad District court in Uttar Pradesh, north India.

The attack took place outside the court room, with the leopard then making its way inside.

Police rushed to the courtroom, where the leopard was trapped and locked up in a cage.

Three people have since been taken to hospital where they are being treated for their injuries.

There have been four leopard attacks in India since October 2022, with three woman and an 11-year-old boy dead.

A 31-year-old college student, named Manjunath, was killed in Ukkalagere, India, on October 31, while another student was killed while travelling to see her family for Christmas.

The latest leopard attack comes a matter of days after an 11-year-old boy was mauled to death in Mysore, India.

The five-year-old animal was captured last week in the Horalahalli village.
