Was it a leopard? An ordinary cat? Or a dog? The video clip was widely shared along with wild theories about which animal was seen strolling casually at the presidential palace.

“Lmao..is it edited or what? How come no one noticed this. Looks like a big cat,” said one user. “Seems a damn leopard due to tail and gait. People were really lucky it peacefully passed,” commented another.

“You can notice it here as well in the first 5 seconds, probably a domesticated cat,” a third user said.

NDTV has reached out to Rashtrapati Bhavan for a comment on the video.

President Murmu administered the oath of office and secrecy to a 72-member Council of Ministers, including 30 cabinet ministers, 36 Ministers of State (MoS) and five MoS with independent charge.
