Crimes against women in India is increasing with each day and it has become a national concern. Just a few days ago, an auto-driver in Kolkata tried to rape a woman and was stopped by three men nearby. The situation’s quite similar in our neighbouring nation, China, as a man used deadly snakes to coerce a woman into having sex with him.
According to Daily Mail, the incident occurred in a hotel in Fuzhou, southern China’s Jiangxi province where a dead body and stray snakes were found in the premises.
After an unspecified source called for the firefighters, Fuzhou Fire Brigade sent seven firemen to the scene. There they caught one snake inside a hotel room and another outside a nearby vacant room. In addition to that, they found the dead body of a man.
The firefighters said that the one that was side in the man’s room was a many-banded krait (one of the deadliest snakes in the world). They said that the man had no signs of life when they had arrived. And that was confirmed by the paramedics who later arrived at the scene.

The reality of what went down in the Fuzhou hotel came to light when the police released a statement based on what a woman named Xiao Hua claimed.
So, according to Xiao, the now dead man, Fan brought her into the hotel at 5 PM and allegedly raped her. And he did so by threatening her with the 3 snakes that he had along with him. However, later that night, Fan was bitten by one of the snakes and instead of seeking medical assistance or calling the police, he went to bed and died in his sleep.
At around midnight, Xiao left the hotel, went back home and then went to the police station to report the case, along with her parents. The post-mortem report did confirm that he died of a snake bite. However, her claims of being raped by Fan is still under investigation.
