A man bitten by a venomous snake in Bihar bit his wife in the wrist as his last wish was to die together.
The woman was saved by a doctor although the man died.
The incident took place in Samastipur district, some 90km north of Patna, on Saturday.
Shankar Rai, a resident of Birsingpur village in the district, was asleep in his home on Saturday night when a deadly snake bit him. When he woke up in the morning, he found his condition worsening and suddenly turned emotional.
