Both rescues took place near the state capital of Dehradun, with monsoon rain being blamed for the sudden emergence of these venomous snakes. Indian Forest Services officer Akash Kumar Verma took to Twitter to share details of both incidents. In a tweet posted on Tuesday, Mr Verma revealed that the forest department’s Rapid Response Team rescued a king cobra in Jamunwala, near Dehradun, amid rain. Sharing two videos of the rescue, the IFS officer said that heavy rain had led to increased instances of serpents venturing into human habitations. “With monsoon at peak, serpents often venture in human habitations,” he wrote while sharing the hair-raising footage of the incident, which he described as “insane”.
