Scared people killed Cobra and forty children
Eggs also destroyed after killing children
Workers engaged in cleaning saw it
This snake was of very big in size
Malda: A Huge snake was killed by villagers only due to panic. Normally in this
area snakes are not killed specially in this breeding season. Actually people were
frightened by the sudden appearance of a huge snake in the middle of the straw
inside the village. It is generally not the custom to kill snakes here in rural areas.
They make some arrangement that the snake in its own way moves towards the
forest or deserted areas on its own. But the atmosphere here was such that as soon
as a big snake was seen in Dangila village, people went to kill him with sticks and
sticks in the name of rescue. This is the incident this morning. After the
completion of some straw, 15 eggs of snakes were also seen from the pile of
straw, then the villagers broke those eggs too.
By the way, the information about the death of such a large number of snakes is
slowly becoming public. Therefore, the people of the village also believe that now
the officers of the forest department can also take action on this. According to the
belief of the countryside anyway, there is no custom to snake anyway and not to
kill at all in this season. In a sudden panic, a lot of people have done it together
suddenly. Environmentalists around the place also believe that killing such a large
number of snakes in panic is not appropriate. Even after this, the environmental
balance of the area will deteriorate and the villagers will have to face a lot of
trouble due to frogs and mice.
A Huge snake inside village was the main reason of panic
and Center and Environment Bachao Samiti here, Mrityunjal Das said that this is
also a lack of awareness. Due to lack of general information, people often lose
their sense of sight at snakes. Later, the terror of frogs and mice starts disturbing
By the way, the villagers say that some people were doing cleaning work there.
Actually this straw was lying under a garden. People got scared because the
children of the village played in the nearby grounds. For this reason, in the care of
their children, people killed them without thinking anything. Some people say
that after seeing the snake, information was given to the people of the forest
department. After receiving no reply from that side, the villagers decided to kill
all the snakes. However, after this incident, the search of nearby areas has also
intensified. Villagers believe that when a snake of such a size is found near the
village, then surely more snakes will be nearby.
In this regard, Anshu Yadav, an official of the Malda Forest Department, said that
killing such a large number of snakes is wrong. If the information was received on
time, the people of the department would go and remove all the snakes safely and
leave them in the forest.
