Mumbai: A snake was found inside the chamber of Justice NR Borkar of the Bombay High Court judge on Friday morning.

According to court officials, the snake, which was 4.5 to 5 feet long and non-poisonous, was discovered early in the morning when the judge was not present in his chambers.

After the snake was discovered, judges’ staff informed the police personnel inside the HC premises, who then contacted an NGO - SarpMitra (friend of the snake).

One of their volunteers of the NGO caught the snake. It will be released in its natural habitat, the official said.

At present, the High court is conducting hearings in cases virtually due to the surge in COVID-19 cases in the city.
