From A Correspondent
Agartala, June 26: In a tragic incident three members of a family died due to ske bite at Hara Chandra Para under Raishyabari police station of Dhalai district. The victims were a young couple and their two year old daughter. Kamal Tripura (29) awoke at mid-night hearing his two-year-old daughter Reati’s scream and found that a venomous ske bit her in the bed. Her mother Katha Laxmi (25) also woke up but she also received a similar bite before she could understand anything. Kamal tried to attack the ske with a takkal (sharp cutting weapon used by local tribals) but the ske bit him too before he could hit it. The local ozha attempting to save them proved futile and in the morning they were taken to Raishabari hospital where the doctor declared all of them dead.
