Three bears were filmed walking into a police station in Chhattisgarh's Kanker in a video that is being widely circulated online. Shared by IPS officer Dipanshu Kabra on Twitter, the footage begins by showing one cub walking calmly into the police station before it is followed by two others.
In his post, Mr Kabra joked that the bears had arrived at Kanker Police Station for a late night surprise inspection before revealing more about the incident. "A late night surprise inspection at police station. Three bears entered police station premises," he wrote in Hindi.
He also applauded the courage and patience of cops who were on duty at the time of the bear invasion, writing: "Salute to the bravery and patience of the soldiers on duty who, despite facing these conditions, put public service before themselves."
