A seven-foot python was rescued after it surfaced on a mall’s façade located on the Nelson Mandela Marg in south Delhi on Saturday morning.

“When we reached there, a python was seen on a compound wall opposite DLF Emporio Mall around 11am,” said Harshad, a member of Wildlife SOS.

The NGO team then scaled the wall in response to which the reptile proceeded to rapidly climb a tall tree nearby. The Delhi Fire Services had to be called to rescue the python in a gruelling three-hour-long ordeal.

The python is suspected to have come from the ridge area near the JNU campus.
