Gumla: Three people of the same family died of snake bite in Palkot block under Gumla district of Jharkhand. After snake bite on Sunday night, instead of taking the three to the hospital, they were exorcized in the village. When they were taken to the hospital in the morning, all three had died.

It was told that all the members of the family living in Lotwa Dugdugi village had gone to the Rath Yatra fair on Sunday. After returning from there and having food, all the people were sleeping on the floor. During this time, a poisonous krait snake bit them. The deceased include Rajesh Kisan, his wife Sunita and brother Manoj.

Family member Bhuvaneshwar said that due to it being night time and there being no means to reach the hospital, exorcism was done in the village itself. No vehicle reached the village even in the morning. The villagers carried all three on their shoulders and took them to the community health center, but by then all three had died.
