On the other hand, four more cobras were found from the same hole of Sadar upazila’s Sattar Khandar’s house, two days after 56 snakes were beaten to death on July 8. Twenty more cobras were found from a pit at the house of one Makbul Sardar of Beula village under Ashashuni upazila on the same day.
Sources said Sattar’s family became homeless after they demolished the mud house out of fear that more snakes could be under the floor.
Over 150 cobras were discovered and beaten to death in separate houses in Rajshahi district over the week.
