Raujan Upazila Health Complex Officer (RMO) Anusen Dasgupta said that the farmer was working on the agricultural land near the house around 9:30 am. At that time, the poisonous snake bit his right leg. Family members brought him to the hospital at 11:30 am. We have tried various ways to save him including vaccination. But he died around 12:15 PM. Basically, I am afraid that the vaccine did not work because of the delay after the snake bite.
