Dwarka: A cobra snake was rescued from White House Apartments in Sector 19B, Dwarka on Monday. As said by the Vice President of the society, Sanjay Rastogi, the snake was spotted around 9.30 pm by a resident while he was parking his vehicle.
The information was passed to the security guards. The managing committee members were also informed. “As soon as we knew about the snake, we cordoned the area so that no one could approach the particular space. Then we called the wildlife people. They came and rescued the snake. The whole process ended around 1 am.”
As Rastogi said, the cobra snake was about six feet long. “People who came from the wildlife department said that the snake would come from the open space around the society. There are three parks around our society. After rescuing the snake, the wildlife people did a spray of chemical to remove any smell of the snake so that its pair could not approach to the society following that smell,” said Rastogi.
As gathered from the residents in the area from various societies, snakes are being spotted inside the premises. Himanshu Joshi, a resident from Seashore CGHS in Sector 19B, said, “A snake was spotted on the 6th floor in the balcony of a flat on August 24 in the evening. Snakes are coming out in the area because of open space and the rainy season. People should be aware and alert. That snake disappeared in few minutes.”
