A rat snake was rescued from the residence of Karnataka home minister Basavaraj Bommai in MLA Layout of Bengaluru's RT Nagar. The snake was rescued by Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) wildlife volunteers and released into a safe habitat later. The home minister’s gun man noticed a juvenile rat snake and called the BBMP control room for help. Snake rescuer Mohan K arrived at the spot and rescued the snake that was hiding under a plant. Mohan said, 'There is a vacant site and blocked drain behind the house of home minister. The snake might have sneaked into the house from there. In fact, there was call for snake rescue from the same house few days ago. By the time we arrived, the snake had escaped by climbing on a tree.'
