If you have seen the popular series Panchayat, you might have an idea of what a usual day at a rural government office is like. A viral video from a suburban block office in Kanpur has further revealed what can happen at a government office. In an unusual incident, a goat that entered the Chaubepur block office premises got hold of a few papers. Seeing this, a staffer at the office gave the goat a chase to retrieve the documents. A video of the incident is going viral in which the staffer is unable to get hold of the goat. In the viral video that was shared on Twitter by popular comedian Rajeev Nigam, a goat can be seen holding a few papers in its mouth. Seeing this, a man – a staff member as per the tweet caption – rushes to chase the goat in order to retrieve the papers. Conscious of the incident being filmed, the man slows down for a bit and the goat scores a lead, making him run to another corner of the office. The 22-second-long video ends before the chase comes to a conclusion and the goat seems to get away with the papers.
After the viral video attracted enough attention with many raising concerns over the safety of the official documents, the Block Development Officer of the Chaubepur block gave a statement to ANI clarifying that the documents were actually “scrap papers” and the goat picked them up from the canteen of the office.
