Udaipur: A 40-year-old man has been killed by a leopard in a village here, police said on Wednesday.

Villagers informed police after noticing blood stains outside Meena's residence. He was alone at home at the time, Assistant Police Inspector Nana Lal said.
The body was located and sent for a post-mortem examination.
