New Delhi: The recent oath-taking ceremony at Rashtrapati Bhavan, the official residence of the President of India, witnessed an unexpected twist that has captured the attention of social media users and news channels alike. A video clip from the event, showing an unidentified animal, has gone viral, sparking speculation and curiosity among viewers.

The ceremony, a formal and dignified affair, took an unusual turn when the animal was spotted during the live broadcast. The footage quickly spread across various social media platforms, with many users and several media outlets suggesting that a wild animal had somehow found its way into the highly secure premises of Rashtrapati Bhavan. The incident generated a flurry of rumors and raised concerns about the security arrangements at such a high-profile event.

In response to the widespread speculation, the Delhi Police issued an official statement to clear the air. According to the statement, the animal in question is not a wild creature, as some reports have claimed, but a common domestic cat. The police clarified that the image captured by the cameras was misleading, and there is no cause for alarm regarding the presence of a wild animal in the vicinity of the President’s residence.

“The animal seen in the viral video clip from the Rashtrapati Bhavan oath-taking ceremony is a common domestic cat,” the Delhi Police statement read. “Contrary to some media reports and social media posts, there was no wild animal present at the event. The security at Rashtrapati Bhavan remains robust and effective.”

The clarification aims to dispel any fears or misconceptions that may have arisen due to the viral clip. The police have urged the public and media to refrain from spreading unverified information that could lead to unnecessary panic.

Despite the official clarification, the incident has continued to be a topic of discussion on social media, with many users sharing humorous takes and memes about the unexpected guest at the ceremony. Some have even praised the cat for its bold appearance at such a grand event, turning the mysterious sighting into a moment of levity.
