A woman suffocated to death after being buried in cow dung to treat a snake bite.
The 35-year-old woman, named as Devendri, was out collecting wood for her fire when a snake bit her on the hand in Bulandshahr, Uttar Pradesh.
She ran home to tell her husband, Mukesh, and the pair decided to call a local snake charmer called Murarey, who suggested his bizarre treatment may succeed in sucking out the poison.
Mukesh said: 'My wife went out to get fire wood and when she was collecting the wood a snake bit her.
'We tried some medicines, a grinded powder, and tied a rope around her arm. But the snake charmer advised us to cover her in cow dung, so we did.
'The snake charmer was confident he could help. We left her in the cow dung for 75 minutes. I never thought she would die, I really thought she'd survive, and it'd work. I never thought this would happen.'
The snake charmer, Murarey, said: 'I'm known in this area to treat animal bites. I think the snake was a cobra. And yes, she died because she was buried.'
The country must feel sorry to her, the governments must feel sorry to her, for it is their failure that till now they could provide them with the basic healthcare and basic education.
Tying a rope and taking her to the nearest medical facility might have saved her but we the people many times trust a Snake charmer more than we trust a learned doctor.
