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.
