The beauty of the Taj Mahal not only attracts visitors but also the 2.74 meters python found at the construction parking lot on Saturday, causing panic among tourists.

Presence of the reptile was noticed by a construction worker who was about to step on it.

Police on duty immediately called the Wildlife SOS department who sent a team of experts there.

Upon arrival, the Wildlife SOS rescue team found the people around the snake, though it was early morning.

After making sure the people were safe, they gently pointed the reptile into the transport vehicle.

It is then released to the appropriate habitat after examination.

Agra police officer Ashok Kumar said one of the workers who had just come to the site of the snake was trampled. Fortunately no accidents occurred and they contacted us.

“We also contacted the Wildlife SOS who came and did the rescue work quickly”, he said.

Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of SOS Wildlife, Kartick Satyanarayan, said rescuing a large snake was not an easy task as it was surrounded by people who wanted to see it.

“We are very grateful that the authorities contacted us before the incident”, he said.

Earlier in May 2017, A six-foot-long snake was found hiding under a water cooler in the water filtration plant of Taj Mahal in the Indian city of Agra.
