MEERUT, India - Police say forestry officials and police armed with tranquilizer darts are searching for a leopard that has injured six people in a northern Indian city, creating panic and driving people indoors.

Police superintendent Abhiskek Singh said the leopard has wandered through a hospital and a crowded market in Meerut city, setting off a minor stampede in which two more people were hurt.

Authorities ordered schools and colleges closed and asked people to stay indoors as police teams scoured the city.

Singh said schools reopened Tuesday. He said officials were on alert but it was likely the animal had fled to nearby forests.
