A nearly six-foot rat snake was rescued from the control room of the sound-and-light show organised at the Mughal-era Agra Fort.
The rescuing NGO, Wildlife SOS, kept the snake under observation for a few hours and later released it into the wild.
"The Uttar Pradesh Tourism Department staff found a nearly six foot long rat snake amidst a pile of unused wires inside the control room. A three-member rescue team promptly arrived at the fort and after ensuring that the area was cordoned off, the team carefully transferred the snake into a safe transport container, " a statement by Wildlife SOS said.
