Superstitions, stereotypes, have continued to take a toll on people in India. While the Urban India is moving forward leaving behind regressive and peculiar practices, many villages in remote areas of India are still surrounded with superstitions which often lead to threat and danger of life.
A yet another bizarre incident has come to light where the family of a deceased man who died after being bitten by a venomous snake, called an occult in the hospital to perform black magic in a bid to bring the dead man back to life.
The incident happened on Wednesday night when the man identified as Satish Gopal of Dumerimunda village in Kesinga was bitten by a venomous snake following which he was rushed to Kesinga hospital.
After his condition worsened there, doctor referred him to the Bhawanipatna hospital on Thursday morning. Later when doctors at the hospital declared him dead, his body was kept at the morgue for post-mortem.
Palpable tension prevailed at the premises after the family members called a black magician to the hospital and allegedly opened the morgue without permission in an attempt to infuse life into Gopal.
