The Delhi Forest department officials have completed a survey and submitted a recommendation to construct a wildlife corridor on the Surajkund-Pali Road close to the Asola Bhatti Wildlife Sanctuary, the first such passage in an urban setting in India.

The forest department escalated the need for the wildlife corridor after a two-year-old female leopard got mowed down by a vehicle on Pali Road at the Delhi-Haryana border.
