The century-old Sealdah NRS Medical College has been on its grounds the whole Friday afternoon? The causes? A venomous snake of the Russell’s Viper variant has been terrifying the whole NRS hospital. A man working inside the medical godown of NRS suddenly detected a snake crawling out from under a table. Hearing the man’s howl, the rest of the staves rushed to the site. After some digging around, it discovered that the serpent was a poisonous Russell’s Viper.
With some attempt, a worker captured it in a bottle and took it to the NRS hospital superintendent. Following the chain of incidents, the snake finally delivered to the forest department.
The snake has been located at various places in the hospital over the last few days. The hospital management cautioned numerous times but to no avail. It hypothesized that the snake might have escaped from a pond near the hospital due to the rainy season. This produces danger to the relatives of sufferers who come from far-off places and spend the night in the NRS.
Killing snakes incorrect, but the way the snake loitering around in the hospital terrorised all night. The NRS management tried to contact the forest department to save the snakes and take them elsewhere. Otherwise some serious trouble might occur someday.
