Indian Forest Officer, Dr. PM Dhakate shared the video on X and gave details of the bizarre incident.  

"In areas adjacent to jungles, there have been many occurrences where an Elephant made its way into Haridwar, in this instance it was the District Collector's office, the elephant advanced towards the main gate of the District Court Judiciary and forcefully opened the closed gate.
