PATHANAMTHITTA: A youth, who performed stunts after wrapping a python around his neck under the influence of alcohol, has been arrested. The incident happened at Adoor in Pathanamthitta. The police arrested Deepu of Parakode. He performed in front of the bar with the snake he caught from the roadside drain. He was drunk at that time. The police handed him over to the forest department.


The incident happened last evening at around 5. Seeing the python in the drain, the people had gathered. Seeing this, Deepu immediately got into the ditch and caught the snake. He then wrapped it around his neck and then performed with it in front of the bar. The visuals had circulated on social media.

On being informed by the locals, the police immediately reached the spot, but Deepu refused to release the snake. Deepu does not have any previous experience in snake catching or a license from the forest department. Neither Deepu nor the snake was injured in the incident. Deepu has been accused of unscientifically catching and torturing the python and displaying it in public to show heroism. The snake is presently kept at the Kummannoor police station.


A video of those trained from the forest department in Thiruvananthapuram trying to capture a king cobra in an unscientific manner, had gone viral on social media earlier. The forest department advice is that the snake should be caught only scientifically. They tried to catch the snake without following this.


This primitive performance of the trained people came in the context of forest department keeping away Vava Suresh saying that he was catching snakes unscientifically. This incident happened in April 2023. A king cobra that climbed a tamarind tree in Edinjar near Ponmudi was handled in this way.
