Leopard or cops, who enforces better curfew, asks UT Adviser

Leopard or cops, who enforces better curfew, asks UT Adviser

Chandigarh, April 2

Amidst the repeated leopard scares in Chandigarh, and the subsequent jokes about it, UT Adviser Manoj Parida has tweeted to ask if the wild cat was better at keeping people indoors than the police.

One leopard was rescued by forest officials from a house in Sector 5 on Monday after it strayed into the city. There was a second scare from Sector 44 on Tuesday, but no leopard presence was confirmed.

In his latest tweet, Parida wrote: “Who can enforce curfew better, leopard or police?”

City residents were quick to respond.

One wrote: “None can stop the 4 aunties in my sector from going on their evening walk post sunset”.

To this someone replied: “Kindly put stamp on the hand of such people saying: Not to be entertained in any healthcare facility for next 14 days. Hope I don't sound inhumane but such negative reinforcement is probably necessary as of now.”

While many appreciated the work being done by the Chandigarh Police, others thought the leopard scare was more effective in keeping people indoors.
