A 23 -year - old Indian man, Sandeep , got bitten by a snake when he went to collect wood from the forest on 24 th July .
He told his family about the snake bite when he returned to the village .

He was then taken to a traditional
tantric practitioner in a nearby village and was assumed dead when the tantric’ s treatment proved ineffective.

As some people in India claim that people who die of snake bites should be buried instead of having their body burnt , the villagers were unsure what to do with Sandeep .

In the end it was decided that his body was to be taken to the local cemetery where a funeral pyre was prepared .
When the fire was close to his body , he started shouting and people realized he was still alive .

Sandeep was again taken to the same tantric practitioner but he could not be saved , and the tantric declared Sandeep dead for the second time .
He was taken to the district hospital where a post mortem examination took place .
