The cobras have currently been kept under observation and will eventually be released into the wild.
The Co-founder & CEO Wildlife SOS Kartick Satyanarayan 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."

The rainy season plays a huge part in snakes venturing into human habitations, says NGO.

The Manager of Wildlife SOS Projects, Wasim Akram said," Most snakes are burrowing reptiles and they spend most of their time underground but during monsoons their homes get destroyed due to flooding and are forced to venture into human habitations, in search of rodents and lizards. Moreover, monsoons mark the mating season for frogs and being a common prey base for snakes, a rise in their population attracts various snakes in the city that depend on them for survival."
