Two `man-eater’ leopards that were captured last year and released back in the wild about 3 weeks ago are suspected to be behind attacks on humans in and around Sariska in the northern Indian state of Rajasthan.

The leopards were released after being surgically castrated in the zoo to make them less aggressive, according to the Indian Express newspaper.

At least four villagers have died in leopard attacks since their release.
