In a rare sight, a monkey in Uttar Pradesh sat on the shoulder of a police officer, flipped his hair, looking for lice, while the cop flipped through the pages of case files.
A video clip, shared by the Additional Superintendent of Police (SP) Rahul Srivastav, shows a monkey in Uttar Pradesh's Pilibhit district sitting on the shoulder of Station House Officer (SHO) Srikanth Dwivedi as he flips through the documents and remains engrossed in his work.
"The monkey came inside the station premises in the afternoon and bit one of the woman officers. After that, he sat on my desk and as I tried to move, but attacked me too. He later ensconced on my chair and began flipping through my hair," said Srikanth Dwivedi.
Dwivedi said that the monkey continued to roam around in the station till midnight. "In the morning, he was released in the nearby forest area," he said.
"The experience of this inspector shows that if one does not want to be disturbed while working, he should use Reetha, Shikakai or a good shampoo," Srivastav tweeted along with the video.
In the comment section of the video, Twitterati extolled the patience exhibited by the police officer.
"Inspector Sahab is totally unfazed, though. No monkey business," said a netizen.
Another person tweeted in Hindi and said, "He should use lice treatment shampoo."
