Found this snake at my door in Raebareli, North India. We of course allowed it to go away peacefully.

Could someone please identify it for me?

It is the venomous Common Krait (Bungarus caeruleus), one of the Big Four Indian Snakes, responsible for the highest number of snake bites in India.

    $\begingroup$ How close was it to humans when it was noticed? Are these aggressive snakes? $\endgroup$ – Roni Saiba Jun 17 at 6:42
