Mulund: On Sunday, residents at Mount Classic- 2 near Yogi Hills at Mulund were in for a shock when two adult male cobras were spotted inside the building premises.
The cobras, which are highly venomous, were found hiding behind a wall inside the complex in the evening and were rescued after two hours.
"We immediately called up the Mulund police and the fire brigade who sent snake rescuers. There were children playing outside and the snake could have bitten them," said Atul Seth, a resident. This is fifth incident of snakes coming inside residential complexes near Yogi Hill areas in the last two months.
Pawan Sharma, head of RAWW (Rescue Association for Wildlife Welfare), said, "Since Mahashivratri was celebrated on March 10, snake charmers must have carried out a puja and have let them off near the hills, from where they could have entered the complex.
"In summer, snakes come out in the open. We released the snakes in the forests," said Sharma.
