Venomous snake found near Omar Abdullah’s residence


Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

Srinagar, May 11 : An extreme venomous snake gave security personnel anxious moments when it was spotted on the lawns of former Chief Minister and National Conference vice president Omar Abdullah’s official residence here, officials said on Saturday.

Official sources told a team from the wildlife department was deputed to the residence who caught the snake on Thursday.

“A Wildlife SOS team in Srinagar rescued the highly dangerous snake, spotted at Omar Abdullah’s residence on May 9 and it was released in Dachigam,” they said.

“The Viper, locally called ‘Gunas’ is extremely venomous,” they said, adding, “The snake was rescued by rescuer Aliya Mir.”

Pertinently, in 2017, a cobra was found at the residence of former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti in Jammu. (GNS)
