MADHYA PRADESH, India – A young man in India, who was earlier presumed dead due to snake bite, rose up from the funeral pyre arranged by his relatives just a few seconds before the fire reached his body.
Scott Campbell mentioned in his article for Mirror Co UK that the 23-year-old man, identified as Sandeep, was attacked by a snake while he was collecting wood from the forest.
When Sandeep returned to his village in the Raisen district of the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, he revealed to his family about the snake bite.
However, instead of taking the man to a hospital for treatment, they brought him to a traditional tantric practitioner in a nearby village. After the treatment proved ineffective, the young man was assumed dead.
The family decided to immediately take Sandeep’s body to the local cemetery where a funeral pyre was prepared. When the fire almost reached the body of the young man, he started to shout which stunned the people there.
An article by Julian Robinson for Mail Online said that after Sandeep regained consciousness, he was taken to the same tantric practitioner again instead of a hospital.
Unfortunately, the young man’s life was not saved and the tantric declared Sandeep dead for the second time.
The young man was next taken to the district hospital where a post-mortem examination took place; confirming the death of Sandeep.
