In a terrifying incident, a cobra slithered into the jeans of a young labourer while he was asleep in Sikandarpur hamlet in Mirzapur on Friday morning.
A group of labourers were engaged for installing electricity poles and wires. After completing their work the workers retired at an Aanganwadi centre on Thursday night.
Around midnight, a snake slithered into the campus and found its way up the jeans of a sleeping worker, Lovekesh Kumar. When the worker felt uncomfortable and checked, he found to his horror a cobra tucked inside his pants.
The scared worker stood through the night holding a pillar for almost seven hours without moving so as to not disturb the reptile. In the meantime, his fellow workers contacted a snake charmer for help. On Friday morning, the snake charmer reached there and freed the snake by slitting the jeans.
Meanwhile, pictures and video of the worker holding the pillar with a snake up his jeans went viral on social media, leaving everyone praying for his well-being.
