Gujarat secretariat Monday morning had a unusual visitor who triggered panic among the few staff present in the premises – a leopard. The animal made its way in on Sunday night.
A State Reserve Police (SRP) jawan spotted the leopard walking from the gate and alerted forest officials.
CCTV visuals showed how the animal after lingering a few moments outside Gate no 7, sits down to crawl from under it and treads unperturbed, through the lonely aisle onto a raised walkway.
About 100 forest officials have reached the spot and set cages and the animal hunt is still underway.
Leopards are boldest among big cats and most difficult to track by feline standards, when they choose to enter human settlements.
