A video has emerged of a 50-something man releasing a sackful of snakes in the wild in India.

"The video was shot on 23 September around 4pm by one of my aides in Panchmadhi forest of Hoshangabad area near Bhopal. We chose to release them during the evening time as the earth is cooler during that time. If the earth is hot, it might cause problem to the snakes who always prefer to stay in cooler places," Saleem Khan, a snake catcher employed with Bhopal civic body, told Newslions Media.

"We released 285 rats snakes deep inside the forest after ensuring that there are no human habitats nearby. The same day, we released as many as 60 poisonous snakes, including cobras," said the snake catcher, who has been servicing for around 30 years in the area.

"We need to rescue snakes because they are our friends -- and not enemies. They also a good friend of farmers as they help kill rats in the fields," said Khan.

Of the 345 snakes released on September 23, many were captured from the bungalows and house of influential people of Madhya Pradesh, including chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and several of his cabinet colleagues.

Khan, who captures and releases around 100-200 snakes every month, is popularly knows as Saleem Saanp Wale, or Saleem the snake man, in the area. "I capture around 25-30 snakes every across Bhopal," says Khan, an employee of Bhopal civic body.
"So far I have rescued and released 220,000 snakes in the jungles of Panchmadhi."
