Speaking to ANI, Dwivedi said that he did not move because the monkey would have attacked him.
“The monkey came to the police station in the afternoon, all of a sudden. It first caught the foot of a woman constable and bit her when she screamed and ran. Then it hopped on to my desk. I was working, had I moved, it would have attacked me,” he said, according to ANI.
The 53-minute long video that was posted last evening on Twitter has already gathered 13.6 lakh views and has been retweeted at least 309 times. Tweeple even lauded the monkey’s courage of climbing on a police officer’s shoulder.
