    Security personnel scanning CCTV footage of Gujarat’s secretariat complex were taken aback when they spotted a huge cat sneaking into the building through a narrow gap in the iron gates. Panic ensued as Forest Department officials were called in to trap the beast.

    New Delhi (Sputnik): Forest Department officials in India's western state of Gujarat have caught a leopard from inside the secretariat building that houses offices of the state's top bureaucrats.

    The feline's presence inside the complex was noted by security men who were scanning the CCTV footage early Monday morning.

    Forest officials used tranquilizer guns and cages to overpower the leopard, which created panic in the secretariat complex. Employees were not allowed to enter the complex until the leopard was caught.
