Indian police inspector doubles up as a snake catcher
"I go wherever I am called and catch the reptiles," the inspector called Sushil says.
The Mandhata police station in Pratapgarh district in India is in the news for a very different reason.
An inspector posted here is well-versed in the art of catching snakes and pythons.
The inspector, Sushil, on Monday caught a python that was spotted in a field in Paniyari village. He put the python in a sack and carried it to the police station.
In the police station, the sack tore up and the python tried to escape, which created a scare among the police personnel and the people present there.
Sushil, once again, caught the python and released it in the nearby Gajehara forest area.
The inspector said that people now call him, instead of the forest team, to catch snakes and pythons.
"I go wherever I am called and catch the reptiles. I have never been afraid of snakes and pythons and know how to catch them without harming myself or the reptiles," he said.
