Thousands of people, gathered in the remote village of Badwapur in Phoolpur area in Varanasi on Saturday to witness the “marriage” of a young man with a cobra

According Mirror Online Sandeep Patel, 27, was convinced the cobra had been a beautiful woman in a previous life and had now fallen in love with him.

He claimed that he could also turn into a snake at night after going into a deep trance.

And he told everyone that the slithering reptile had promised to wed him on Easter Saturday.

Between 12,000 and 15,000 people flocked to watch the ceremony at the remote village of Badwapur in Phoolpur state.

Excited Sandeep, who arrived wearing just trousers and a white vest, was soon garlanded with colourful flowers by the crowd.

The Hindu priest carrying out the marriage told them that he had “exhibited traits of a snake” since childhood.

He added: “Sandeep walks, drinks and flickers his tongue just like a snake.”

But the orange-robed priest ran away in a panic when armed police burst into the temple after being tipped off about the bizarre wedding.

Both Sandeep and his father Dayashankar, a farmer, were arrested for “breaching the peace”.

But then, India newspapers reported, the disappointed crowd threatened to riot because the wedding had been cancelled.

Police reinforcements had to be called in to disperse them to their homes in surrounding villages.
