AIZAWL, Sept 24 - Lalramdina, of Darlak village in Mamit district of Mizoram, was brought to Mamit civil hospital on September 20 after a snake bite. Doctors declared him dead.
Refusing to lose hope, his family and relatives sent for a traditional snake bite healer in Tanhril village near Aizawl.
�The healer made all efforts to heal the man. The family and villagers had hopes of reviving him as the body did not get stiff like a normal body,� Mikaela, a villager said over phone.
However, instead of showing any sign of recovery, the body started to emit bad smell since yesterday. �The villager leaders and the family members made a decision on Saturday night that the body be buried on Sunday, four days after the doctors declared him dead,� he said.
The body was buried at Darlak village today. Lalramdina is survived by his wife and four small kids.
