This was sent to me the other day from a northeastern province in Afghanistan. The serpent is a bout 1 to 1.2 meters long according to the description sent with the email. Can anyone identify it?

Based on what I can see in the photo it might be the colubrid snake: Spalerosophis (maybe diadema). A common harmless snake of that region.
