The incident happened around 3:30 pm. A 31-year-old youth named Ji Sai Kumar sat on the boulder built around the lion’s enclosure. Where the young man was sitting, it was the farm of an African lion. This is a restricted area. According to India Today’s Ashish Pandey report, the youth sat on the boulder and started trying to jump into the enclosure.

A video of this incident has also surfaced, in which it is seen that the young man is sitting and the lion is roaming in the enclosure. Seeing the young man once, the lion also tries to jump on him. People raised the alarm, after which the zoo staff swung into action and took the young man away. After this, the youth was handed over to the Hyderabad Police.


During interrogation, it has been found that the youth is a resident of the Keesara area and his mental condition is not good.

Such cases have come before

According to the News Minute, a similar case was reported in the year 2016 in Hyderabad Zoo. A man had jumped into the lion’s enclosure. The young man wanted to meet the lions. Then the zoo staff caught the young man a few steps before the lion. After this, the person was fined and jailed for four months.

A similar case had come to Delhi in 2019. In Delhi’s zoo, too, a young man had gone to the lion’s enclosure. He also took a selfie with the lion. In time, the staff of the zoo had taken him out. It was learned about the young man that he was mentally weak.


At the same time, in 2014, a 20-year-old youth jumped into an 18-feet deep enclosure of a white tiger in Delhi’s zoo. This young man named Maqsood remained alive in the enclosure for about 15 minutes.

For about 10 minutes, he sat in front of the tiger with folded hands, begging to be spared. The tiger lightly pawed him four or five times and returned. Meanwhile, the crowd gathered outside the enclosure started making noise. Its tiger returned and took Maqsood’s life.
