When local officials at a tax office in northern India allegedly attempted to bribe two farmers who wanted to obtain property tax records they were in for quite the surprise.
Not willing to pay the extortion fees pushed upon them the farmers instead filled two sacks with 40 lives snakes, including four deadly cobras which they then proceeded to set free inside the tax buildings offices.
According to one state official:
“Snakes started climbing up the tables and chairs,” and “There was total chaos. Hundreds of people gathered outside the room, some of them with sticks in their hands, shouting that the snakes should be killed.”
Thankfully no one was bitten or suffered injuries as the offices frenzy continued until the snakes could be captured.
In the meantime police are still searching for the two farmers, one of which is a snake charmer.
Apparently people in other countries also don’t like their tax officials.
