A video has gone viral on social media where a herd of elephants is seen pushing two cars in the Bhakrakot area, close to the Corbett Tiger Reserve (CTR) in Uttarakhand.

After pushing the cars to some extent, the herd comprising nearly a dozen elephants later left the scene. The cars were slightly damaged in the incident.

Divisional Forest Officer (DFO) Ramnagar VP Singh said the cars belonged to tourists who had parked in the forest area without any valid permission. 

"This is an elephant corridor and cars were parked wrongly. Tourists must understand that they should see to their safety and then venture into such places," said Singh.

However, no one was injured in the incident which happenned early this week.
