Rats in a bank in Uttar Pradesh’s Shamli district near Muzaffarnagar made its burglar alarm go off, throwing police and authorities in a tizzy.
The rodents accidentally breached the alarm system at a branch of the Indian Bank on Monday, making the siren go off, police said.
They said there were no bank officials present, as it was a holiday on account of Janmashtami.
