Mangalore Today News Network

Bantwal, Oct 20, 2016: The python  which had recently attacked   11 year old Vaishakh at Sajipa village in the taluk, but had to beat a hasty retreat when the boy had tried to crush its face with a stone even as it curled over his body, has been  caught by locals  on the evening of October 19  and  shifted to the Pilikula Nisargadhama at Vamanjoor in Mangaluru.



Meanwhile, a few locals namely Sattar, Balakrishna and Jagadish Kudur who were injured  in their effort to trap the python have been admitted to a hospital.

It has been gathered that the python was first spotted by  Jagadish, a relative of Vaishakh when he had been to attend a house warming ceremony on  Wednesday evening. Though he tried to trap it using the mat in his autorickshaw, it was a futile exercise and the python hit him with its hood.  Later  Balakrishna and Sattar who were passing that way   too joined and  caught  hold of the  python.

Ordinary people live in peace and harmony and want to continue the same way. Here its Balakrishna and Sattar joined hands and captured the python. Its the corrupt politicians who sow the seeds of divide and rule. Shame on the politicians!!!

As the experts have told that it the time for the python to move around for food. Python has strange features that it adjusts its body according to the size of the object it is ready to swallow .

The locals of Sjipa may be at ease as the python is trapped . Evey time we cannot expect Vaishak’s alertness from every child .
