Lieutenant General (retired) Muhammad Akram has refuted the ownership of a leopard that was captured from Islamabad on Thursday. 

According to an investigation conducted by the 24NewsHD TV channel, it has been revealed that the social media’s claims that the leopard belonged to Lt Gen retired Akram turned out to be false. 

Lt Gen retired Akram neither has a basement in his house located in DHA Islamabad nor it contains any leopard cage. 

The social media’s claim of the presence of two more cheetahs in his house also turned out to be false. Now, it has become a million-dollar question where did the cheetah come from in DHA Islamabad?

A “pet” leopard escaped from its owner on Thursday and roamed the streets of DHA phase II Islamabad, for hours, mauling six people before being shot with a sedation dart. 

The fun part is social media users are mocking its police and how everyone knows who owned the exotic animal except for the cops.

Since Friday morning social media users have been expressing outrage on many things such as: 

a) How an exotic wild animal can be kept in a residential area. b) None of the leopard’s owners trained their domestic workers to keep the leopard in a cage or protect people from it.

c) The owners literally failed to keep safe. 

It has been reported that the owner of the leopard is a retired general. 

Talking to the media, Gen Akram dispelled the impression that he kept the exotic animal, saying that it is highly commendable to start baseless propaganda against him.  

It is learned that the DHA administration has approached the accused who had brought cheetah into the residential area. 

The wild animal came into the vicinity a few days ago.  

Speculations on social media regarding the persons responsible for the incident are not far from reality, the administration adds. 

As soon as the matter came into the spotlight, the administration sprang into action. It added that the investigation into the matter is going on. “We are close to getting the matter, the results of the investigation will be shared with the public.”
