An Indian cobra or spectacled cobra locally known as 'Gokhro' was caught from the hiouse of Tapan Roy of Khalaigram area under Dhupguri police station late on Monday night. The snake was hiding in a hold of the cemented floor.
Mintu Dutta Chowdhury, a snake specialist and president of Dooars Nature & Snake Lovers' Club recovered the snake with his club members.
"The snake is a female one. It entered Roy's house in search of food or to lay eggs. Owing to random deforestation snakes are taking shelters at human-habitations nowadays," Dutta Chowdhury said. (EOIC)
