As rains continue to lash Hyderabad, residents have another problem to face – snakes. Alwal residents on Tuesday found themselves dealing with a snake that was washed up in one of the houses, and took matters in their hands after the inaction from Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC).
Terrified residents called GHMC to capture the snake that found its way into the house of a resident. After waiting for hours and frustrated with lack of action from the authorities, Sampath Kumar, one of the residents, of the area decided to capture the uninitiated reptile and transport it to the GHMC ward office.
Kumar went to the authorities carrying the snake and released it on the GHMC ward officer’s table. The incident was captured in a video that went on social media. The video showed the snake – alive – curled up on the ward officer’s table as the residents protested the inaction of the authorities.
