Woman, grandson die from snakebite on Eid day

Woman, grandson die from snakebite on Eid day

An elderly woman and her grandson died from snakebite at Sadar upazila in Jhenidah district on the early morning of Eid-ul-Azha.

The deceased were identified as Natiran Nesa, 95, a resident of Berbari village under the upazila, and her grandson Tariqul Islam, 22.

Local UP member Sohrab Hossain said a venomous snake bit Natiran at early hours of Wednesday when she was in sleep in the house. She immediately woke up and started crying due to severe burning sensation. 

Hearing screams, Tariqul also woke up and touched her body to find out what happened to her. During the time, the snake also bit him.  

Instantly, the family members took them to a local snake charmer where Tariqul died. 

As the snake charmer could not give any treatment, they, later, took the elderly woman to Jhenidah Sadar Hospital. She died there this morning while undergoing treatment. 

Jhenidah Sadar Police Station officer in-charge Emdadul Haque confirmed the matter.
