Barang, Nov 24: All the five cubs delivered by lioness Bijli at the Nandankanan Zoological Park here on the outskirts of Bhubaneswar city on Tuesday are in good health, zoo authorities said.

According to an official of the zoo, Bijli gave birth to five cubs in a gap of a few hours. All the cubs are alive and healthy.

The lioness and her cubs have been kept under 72-hour observation under CCTV surveillance as it is considered crucial for the big cat family and are said to be out of danger.
