A full-grown male and female leopard and a cub were charred to death when they came in contact with a transmission pole that accidentally came in contact with live electric wire it was supporting. The tragedy took place in compartment no. 655 of Saleghat forest range under the Forest Development Corporation of Maharashtra (FDCM).
