BANGKOK — A man in Thailand has prised a large python off his private parts after it bit him while he sat on a toilet.
Attaporn Boonmakchuay, 38, told Thailand’s Channel 7 he struggled with the 3-metre python for half an hour after it came up through the plumbing and bit him on the penis.
“I fought it. I called my wife and she went to get the neighbour,” he said from his hospital bed.
“It took about a minute for the neighbour to get here. And all of a sudden, while I was holding it, it began to lose some strength so I used my hand to prise open its mouth. Then the snake released its grip by itself.”
Rescue workers had to dismantle the toilet to remove the snake from the plumbing, then carry the toilet outside before chipping off enough porcelain using hammers to remove the snake.
He fainted from loss of blood after removing the snake.
Doctors said he needed stitches, but should heal well.
“I think he’s lucky,” hospital director Dr Chutima Pinchareon said.
“We have to watch for infection. If there’s none and if the wound is healing well he should be able to go home. But if the bite had gone into the urinary tract it would have been a big problem.”
Nirmala Panta rape, murder case : Locals protest after wrong suspect paraded
BHIMDUTTANAGAR — Locals who were protesting against the rape and murder of Nirmala Panta of Kanchanpur’s Bhimdatta Municipality, have enforced shutdown in Bhimduttanagar Bazaar on Tuesday, protesting police’s failure to reveal facts behind the murder of 13-year-old girl and parading wrong suspect on Monday.
The District Police Office, organising a press conference on Monday,had made public Dilip Singh Bista (41), of Baghphanta, Bhimdatta Municipality-19 as Nirmala’s murderer.
Locals have shut down the market area stating that police were not being able to make public the true murderer(s) as they are not convinced by the findings of police citing that Bista was mentally unsound, according to the District Police Office.
Transportation has also been halted.
Bista, a resident of Khanna Chauraha area in Bhimdutta Municipality-19, was apprehended near the scene of crime on Sunday, according to police.
Police making public the wrong suspect has infuriated the locals and fueled the protest.
The agitators including various civil society organisations and human rights defenders have been picketing the District Administration Office and staging rally on the street mounting pressure on the police to reveal the facts behind the heinous crime.
Meanwhile, it had been learnt that police have fired rounds of teargas shells to contain the agitated mob.
Nirmala was found murdered in a sugarcane field on July 27, a day after she had gone to her friend’s home to get a notebook.Follow @gorkhapost
