Tanmay Kolte, a rescue team member said as soon as he went near it, the cat charged at them, so they caught it  using hand gloves. 
When we rescued the cat, it was very afraid, dehydrated and bleeding from tail portion as it got a wound. We took it to Veterinary Doctor for treatment and will be keeping it for observation till it recovers and as it is in shock, so we decided not to transport it on that day, said other rescue team member and Honorary Animal Welfare Officer Nisha Kunju.
