PATNA: A man bitten by a venomous snake in Bihar bit his wife in the wrist as his last wish was to die together, according to the Gulf News.

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.

As per reports, 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.

Apparently realising that he won’t survive for long, he came rushing to his wife Amiri Devi and bit her hands saying he loved her very much and wanted to die together. Both fell unconscious soon, witnesses said.
