Footage shared by Mumbai police shows a police official removing a six-foot python from a Dharavi house, where the snake had wrapped itself around the wooden beams on the ceiling.
In the video clip, police constable Murlidhar Jadhav captures the python with his bare hands amid the panic.
The Indian rock python had sneaked inside the home and caused chaos among the residents who contacted the police department for help, according to Mumbai Police. Police constable Murlidhar Jadhav responded to the rescue call despite having a fractured leg, and earned praise for this fervour.
"A fractured leg didn't stop PC Murlidhar Jadhav from performing his duty, who rescued the python & released it in its natural habitat with help from the Forest Dept.," Mumbai Police wrote while sharing footage of the rescue operation on Twitter
