In the clip, Inspector in-charge Shrikant Dwivedi is seen all busy in work with the monkey sitting on his shoulder seemingly searching for lice in his hair. The inspector doesn't seem to be bothered or disturbed by the monkey and continues to do his work with utmost dedication.

It is however, not clear who has captured the video of the incident.
