Extorting Money with Snakes!

Extorting Money with Snakes!

One afternoon, I along with a few friends was visiting the Zia Uddan. Quite a few people were seen taking a break from their busy lives and enjoying the weather. All of a sudden, a group of young women with snakes and baskets came out of nowhere asking for money. They were threatening the visitors with their snakes, if they were not given the money. Most of the visitors, being panic-stricken, were forced to pay. This is something that is happening almost everywhere, but the authorities do not seem to do anything about it. I would like to request the authorities to look into this immediately.
