It’s claimed that the snake emerged from the motorcyclist’s masks moments before put it on to start driving away.

After spotting the snake the motorcyclist ‘ran away screaming’ and a professional snake catcher was called, but he struggled to keep his hands on evasive reptile.

Amit, a photo journalist, said: “The snake was sitting in the bike mask to take in the heat due to it being cold during the winter.

“My friend who uses his bike daily went on it to the market and immediately ran away.

“He saw the snake coming out of the mask, started screaming and running around.

“People accumulated around them, when someone called the snake catcher who retrieved the snake after about 20 minutes.

“I was thrilled to see this sight, the snake stressed out the snake holders because it was not easy to catch and kept trying to hide repeatedly.

“Meanwhile people standing in the crowd were shouting.”
