DHUBRI, Sept 7 - A 10-foot Burmese python was rescued by Forest officials at a tea shop in front of the Deputy Commissioner�s Office and Dhubri Court here today.
The place where the python was recovered is situated on the banks of River Brahmaputra and according to Forest officials, the python might have reached there by floating in the river.
There has been a sudden rise in the python population here which, according to Forest officials, is due to the recent floods. They said that the second wave of flood came all of a sudden, bringing in its wake large reptiles from nearby water bodies to the Dhubri area.
The rescued python was later released into the Sareswar Beel in Rupshi area.
