As per reports, the patients and their relatives as well as the other people who were present in the hospital of Manamunda in this district got scared after a poisonous cobra snake was witnessed by some people in the hospital premises.

Panic gripped among the people present there after witnessing the snake. However, some people tried to drive out the snake to a safe place but in vain. Accordingly, the snake helpline unit of Manamunda was contacted for rescue of the reptile.
