Chandigarh, June 7 : Two persons were injured in an explosion in a private bus in Haryana’s Fatehabad district on Tuesday, police said.

In the incident, Bhagirath, 45, and his wife, Rajbala, 40, suffered minor burn injuries.

“The two are out of danger and are being treated in Civil Hospital, Fatehabad,” the Hisar range Inspector General (IG) O.P. Singh said in his report to the state government.

Senior police officers along with a bomb disposal squad and crime scene team reached the spot and were investigating the incident, O.P. Singh said.

The bus was plying on the Bhuna-Fatehabad Road while on its way from Jakhal to Fatehabad. The incident took place about 20 km from Fatehabad.

Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order) Muhammad Akil said the explosive device was placed in a black bag.

“Preliminary examination has revealed use of sulphur-like substance, commonly used in crackers,” Akil said.

This is the fourth incident of explosion in Haryana this year.

Two of the incidents happened in Panipat district on January 16 and May 13 and one in Pipli in Kurukshetra district on May 26.

The Pipli blast took place in a moving Haryana Roadways bus, leaving eight people injured. IED technology was used to trigger the blast which remained a low-intensity one.

 

Following the latest incident, Haryana Transport Minister Krishan Lal Panwar said CCTV cameras will be installed in all Haryana Roadways buses and directions have also been issued to private bus operators to install such cameras.

Deadly cobra comes home for dinner!

Giant Cobra Rescued

Agra, Aug 6 : A slithering serpent triggered a state of panic amongst members of a family as soon as they spotted the uninvited guest comfortably perched in a drawer of the almirah in their bedroom, perhaps waiting for dinner time to move out.

The local police man contacted the NGO Wildlife SOS which sent its team to nab the reptile. A two-member team from the NGO geared up with necessary rescue equipment and rushed to the location. After ensuring that the occupants were at a safe distance, the team carefully extricated the distressed cobra from the almirah and transferred it in a safe transport carrier. It took 30 minutes minutes for the rescue operation. The reptile was safely rescued by the team and was later released back in its natural habitat.

Baijuraj M.V, Director Conservation Projects for Wildlife SOS, said, “We are glad that more and more people are reaching out to us for help, rather than taking matters in their own hands. Snake sightings increase in the monsoons and our teams work round the clock to ensure no call for aid goes unanswered.”

Kartick Satyanarayan, CEO and Co-founder of Wildlife SOS, said “Being one of the four most venomous snake species to be found in India, our team had to exercise a lot of caution while conducting the rescue in order to avoid any unnecessary casualties. Sometimes these rescues can be dangerous and risky, but our team is trained to handle and carry out such sensitive operations, in the interest of public safety and protection of urban wildlife.”

The cobra was kept under observation for a few hours and later released back in the wild.

India is home to a variety of snake species ranging from extremely venomous snakes like the Cobra and Common krait to relatively harmless and non-venomous ones like the Common sand boa, Red sand boa, Wolf snake & Rat snake. Largely misrepresented and often perceived as dangerous, reptiles are met with fear and hostility, leading to incidents of human conflict with this species.
