Speaking with mid-day, TC Sukesh Kumar said, "On Thursday evening I was on duty at Vasai railway station and I received a message that a snake was inside the 22633 Trivandrum-Nizamuddin Express train. Looking at the alert, I rushed toward the coach. I found the snake was hiding in one of the luggage. I immediately took permission from my senior to rescue the snake. After I rescue the snake, we released it into a jungle area near Vasai. I don't have knowledge about which species of snake."

"At Kozhikode station, another woman passenger too had seen this snake inside the coach and the entire coach was vacated at the station but during the search operation, they couldn't find this snake. It has been inside the train from Kozhikode station," TC Sukesh Kumar added.
