A live baby snake was found in a supposedly sealed bottle of mineral water, and served to none other than the Indian minister of health, JP Nadda, and Dr Raman Singh, the chief minister of Chhattisgarh state, where the government event was being held.

The reptile-containing bottle was discovered by a doctor, who alerted staff, who removed it along with all the other bottles for safe measure.  


How the snake got into the sealed bottle is unknown (although the water company owner has labeled it a conspiracy), but the baby snake, not thought to be of an aquatic species, is believed to have survived its ordeal.
