She experienced intense pain, redness, swelling, and bleeding. Acting promptly, the kin rushed her to the government hospital, Manasa from where she was referred to Neemuch district hospital owing to her critical condition.
Dr Heman Patidar told that the unexpected spotting of reptiles, especially snakes, increases during monsoon, thereby rising snake bite cases, especially in rural areas.
