Anxiety had also been rife in the western Dooars since Friday morning as a savage defender strayed into the fringes of Gorumara National Park in search of fodder and killed two people, damaged their homes and a private complex nearby.

A resident of the Good Hope tea plantation on the outskirts of Malbazar spotted the bear in the garden on Thursday evening.
