The cubs were born in November 26 last year but the zoo management announced the happy news only today. They took to Twitter to share the news.

According to the announcement, the cubs are currently kept under supervision and are bonding with their mother in maternity den. 

Zoo visitors will not be able to see the newborn cubs before a couple of months as they are not ready to be exposed yet.
