In a bizarre incident, a man in a state of intoxication bit a snake into pieces after it bit him in a village in Etah district of Uttar Pradesh on Sunday night.

The man identified as Raj Kumar was admitted to a hospital but was referred to another hospital after the doctors termed his condition as “serious”.

The man’s father said that he was drunk at the time the reptile bit him.

“My son was drunk. A snake entered our home and bit him. He later bit the snake into pieces. His condition is serious. We are unable to afford the expenses of his treatment,” Babu Ram, father of Raj Kumar told ANI.

After the incident, Raj Kumar’s family cremated the snake.
