To safeguard the employees, the factory was evacuated after the production line was locked and machines were shut down. According to reports, around 100 cops had reached the spot and the area was cordoned off for security reasons.
In addition to the police, forest department officials also rushed to the spot to rescue the leopard. The panic increased around the factory as the leopard was last spotted near the engine room of the factory and the officials could not find any traces further. Forest department officials are taking leads from CCTV monitoring system to trace the leopard that is still believed to be inside the factory.

Trap laid for the Leopard at Maruti Suzuki Plant in Gurugram
Finding the Leopard inside Maruti Suzuki plant is one of the very tricky situations. One of the major challenges in front of the officials is to search the leopard inside the Maruti Suzuki factory that is stuffed with numerous machineries, most of which, are installed over elevated platforms that are about 2 meter-high.
According to report, the forest officials have claimed that rescuing the leopard inside the Maruti Suzuki plant is not viable. The officials are thinking over the fact that the leopard that is considered as a mysterious cat of the jungle generally hides itself during the day. The officers are expecting that the leopard, trapped inside the Maruti Suzuki plant in Manesar, may come out at night, similar to its natural habitat, when it comes out of its hide in search of food.
The area is very big and carrying out a search operation may not bring out desired results. Though the officials are hoping to rescue the leopard at Maruti Suzuki’s Manesar plant yet if the expectations are not met they may put live bait traps in the evening/night to rescue the leopard in Maruti Suzuki’s Manesar.
