Ideally, people who get bitten by a snake would immediately seek medical attention rather than exact revenge. But then again, there are regions around the world that have different beliefs and practices even if they are deemed high risk or even bizarre.

That seems to be the case for the 45-year-old tribal man from Odisha. He was reportedly bitten by a krait snake at a remote village in the Jajpur district as he was returning home from a paddy field on Wednesday night.

But as he was returning home on foot, the man identified as Kishore Badra of Gambharipatia village under Salijanga panchayat under Danagadi block narrated how he was bitten by a poisonous krait snake. Badra only realized he was bitten when he turned on his torch at the time.

“Something bit on my leg while I was returning home on foot last night. I switched on my torch and found it to be a poisonous krait snake. In order to take revenge, I took the snake in my hands and bit it repeatedly, killing the viper on the spot,” Badra said to News18.

For some reason, he was able to locate and capture the same snake that bit him. To take revenge, the 45-year-old allegedly bit the snake to death repeatedly. He returned to the village with the dead snake in hand and told his wife what had happened.

Badra drew a lot of attention as he showed the dead krait snake in hand to his friends. However, some expressed concern about his actions. He was told to go to a hospital to have himself checked, particularly because of the snake bite and his biting revenge.

Rather than head to a hospital, Badra opted to go to a healer instead. Miraculously, he did not exhibit any effects from the snake bite and him biting the poisonous snake as well.

Badra went on to explain that the whole ordeal with the krait snake did not affect him. He also claims that he was cured by the healer that he visited.
