Bull does a Veeru, climbs atop water tank in Rajasthan

An unforgettable scene of Sholay movie where Dharmendra (Veeru) goes atop the tank has often been replicated by many, either to get their demands fulfilled or to threaten suicide. But this time it was a bull who was in the news.

A shocker to many, the bull kept people and officials on toes for eight hours, after it went up the 60-foot high water tank and was in no mood to come down.

The incident became an amusement for the residents of Ratangarh in Nawalgarh Taluk of Churu district in Rajasthan, when they sighted the bull atop a water tank at 2:30 pm on Monday.

 Residents called the officials of municipal corporation, who tried all their rescue tricks. But the adamant bull did not come down.

Around 9 pm, after all efforts failed, a veterinary doctor was called and sent atop with the help of a crane. He administered an anaesthesia to the bull after which it was brought down.

According to an official at the State Disaster Response Force, “A wire was tied with the tank and stretched to the ground. Safety belts were tied around the bull’s body.

Finally when anaesthesia started working, the rope was pulled down which brought the dizzy bull down.”

Municipal corporation officials told DH that the bull’s condition is normal now. Rescue team struggled for almost eight hours and finally succeeded in bringing it down. The door to the stair case of the water tank has been closed now.
