Office workers jump on tables as snakes are let loose in an Indian officeOther

An angry snake charmer in India has let loose loads of his own snakes in a government office, sparking chaos and panic.

Mr Hakkul dumped the snakes, including a number of cobras, at the office in protest.

He was angry because they wouldn't let him have a plot of land for his snakes.

Many of the frightened officials ran out of the office, while others climbed on top of tables.

Mr Hakkul is a snake expert and is usually the person called whenever one is spotted - he's even saved lives with his knowledge.

The good news is that no-one was bitten or injured but the snakes are yet to be caught.
