Fear of snakes

Sunday Express - - INDIA -

Of­fi­cials of the plan­ning and de­vel­op­ment depart­ment at the Sec­re­tariat in Patna are fear­ful of snakes se­cretly slith­er­ing on old files and fur­ni­ture. Ever since a snake skin was found from among the files some weeks ago, many of­fi­cials fear that ser­pents are hid­ing in of­fice rooms of the 101-year-old Sec­re­tariat build­ing. It is an­other thing that no one has seen any snake so far. The depart­ment has con­tacted the San­jay Gandhi Bi­o­log­i­cal Park, urg­ing the park of­fi­cials to send a res­cue team to safely take away ser­pents. But af­ter a thor­ough search by the wildlife team for two hours, there was no trace of any snake. Still, of­fi­cials re­main on their guard at their duty hours at the Sec­re­tariat.
