According to Assistant Commissioner of Police Abhishek Srivastav, “half a dozen persons have suffered severe injuries after being assaulted by the animal, which is still on the court grounds.” According to video obtained by AFP, cops wearing body armour were attempting to capture the animal by setting up nets inside the courthouse and brandishing burning torches.
