According to a local doctor, Dr. Saubhagya Katiyar, “One should immediately stop the supply of blood to the part where the snake has bitten and rush to the hospital for getting a snake antivenom on time. In this case, the man’s life could have been saved if he had taken proper medical help.”

Mishra has left behind his wife and five sons.
