Indian snake charmer releases a bag of cobras in tax office in protest
Local bureaucrats leapt onto their desks or ran out of the building in the Northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh when Hakkul let his snakes, including some poisonous cobras, out of their bags.
“He had applied for a plot of land to keep his snakes,” Subhash Mani Tripathi, the head of land revenue administration, told AFP news agency. “But there is no provision for such a business. Instead of seeking a written reply, which we would have issued, Hakkul created panic by letting loose a bunch of snakes all over the office.”
