A snake was spotted onboard an Indigo flight at the Kolkata Airport, leading to commotion all around, according to a report in the Times of India. The serpent was found before the flight was to leave for Mumbai.

According to the report, passengers were yet to board the aircraft, which had landed at the airport from Raipur and was parked at a secluded bay area, when the incident occurred. A baggage handler saw the snake, which was curled around a baggage belt in the plane. The ground staff immediately cleared the area and informed airport authorities who, in turn, informed the forest department. The snake was rescued by forest department officials, who took it away for rehabilitation.

The massive reptile, officials said, was a non-poisonous rat snake, which, they speculated, made its way into the plane while the baggage was being offloaded from the flight upon arrival from Raipur.
