A stray cow entered into one of the classrooms of the Indian Institute of Technology-Bombay (IIT-B) at Powai in Mumbai.
The incident was reported on Sunday and a clip of the incident purportedly shot by a student has gone viral.
Just last fortnight, a student was badly injured after a pair of bulls attacked him in the IIT-B campus.
Students in a first-floor lecture hall were stunned and shocked to see the cow inside the classroom. Some of the students tried to shoo the animal away but she went on her own - in the route of her choice.
It may be recalled that in the past, several times, leopards have been spotted inside the IIT campus. These leopards generally stray out from the Sanjay Gandhi National Park via Aarey Milk Colony.
Meanwhile, the IIT-B management has constituted a committee to look into the issue of human-animal conflicts inside the campus.
They would be consulting various agencies including the Mumbai municipal corporation and NGOs.
On social media, the incident invited a lot of comments.

In a humour, Jeevana Mounike wrote: "#IITBombay is so polluted that the cow decided to oxygenate it with its fresh air. Being the anti nationalists they are, the crowd tried to shoo it away. Can we kill them already for disrespecting the cow?"
