Residents of a house got the shock of their lives when over 150 snakes made their way into their house in UP’s Lakhimpur Kheri district.

Snakes entered the house from a basement under one of the walls late night, Deputy Inspector R K Rai said.The sound of the hissing woke the residents and they raised an alarm. The frightened family spent the night at a neighbour’s home.

All the serpents were later captured with the help of neighbours and safely released in forest area, Rai said.
