According to sources, snake rescuer Braja Kishore Sahu had rescued a King Cobra from the house of a local resident two months back. He took the snake to home and decided to release in the nearby forest the next day. On the very day when he was about to release the snake in the forest, he saw the mother Cobra delivered 19 eggs at his residence. 

Though he released the snake in forest, he carefully kept the eggs and was eagerly waiting for the birth of the baby snakes. On Monday, all 19 snake babies were born.

Later, Brajakishore informed forest department to release all the baby snakes in the nearby Golargada forest.
