New Delhi: In a startling incident, a man jumped inside the lion enclosure in the Delhi zoo. The man, yet to be identified, jumped over the walls of cage and got into direct eye-to-eye contact with the lion.
Fortunately, he was rescued by the security personnel who swung into action following the horrific episode.
The man is said to be mentally unstable and is being questioned by the security personnel.
The episode raises serious questions about the security standards at Delhi Zoo.
In fact, this is not a one-off incident. Similar episode happened in 2014, when a man had jumped inside the lion cage and was apparently killed by the lion.
Similar incident in Kerala in 2018
Last year, a 33-year-old youth named Murukan climbed the wall of zoo and entered the lion’s cage.
The youth climbed over the wall and entered the cage around 12 noon. He was rescued from the jaws of lioness.
