Adult python found in AC coach
When the train arrived at Balasore station at about 7 pm today passengers complained to the RPF personnel patrolling the platform and we immediately informed the guard of the train and managed to catch the snake,? said officer-in-charge of RPF at Balasore Amulya Biswal.
The snake was found near the toilet and it was suspected that it had escaped while some person was trying to smuggle it, he said. The Guwahati bound express had to be detained for about half an hour at the platform here to catch the 5 feet-long python, he added. The local forest officials have been asked to take possession of the snake.
