Indian school shut after cobras take shelter

PATNA: A school in Bihar has been shut for the past fortnight over some deadly visitors: cobras, according to a global media report.

School authorities refuse to drive the snakes away as they believe causing harm to reptiles may bring ill fortune during this month, called Shrawan as per the Hindu calendar, when Hindus offer water to Lord Shiva, the deity of snakes.

Reports said deadly cobras took shelter in a government middle school in Sripat Nagar, in West Champaran, a fortnight ago after rain flooded their lairs.

The school was shut after the cobras were seen in classrooms. School authorities said they would wait for the snakes to go back to their old home instead of asking snake charmers to catch them.
