Jharkhand News: Jharkhand Shocking news has come to light exposing the deep roots of superstition in public and mismanagement of hospitals. A woman admitted to the ICU of Sadar Hospital in a critical condition due to snake bite in Gumla district of the state was handed over to the tantriks for about 3 hours. Those who claim to cure snakebite through tantra-mantra and exorcism are called Ojha-Bhagat in Jharkhand. Three or four such Ojha-Bhagat kept chanting with the woman lying on the hospital bed in the ICU and the hospital management remained a mute spectator. When there was no improvement in his health and his condition worsened, the family members took him to RIMS.
Know what is the whole matter
Let us inform that 25-year-old wife of Shakti Nayak, resident of Ambua village of Sadar block, Archana Devi was bitten by a snake. The family admitted him to the ICU of Sadar Hospital, but seeing his serious condition, Doctor Manoj Surin had referred him to RIMS, Ranchi. After this, instead of taking him to Ranchi, the family members started calling Ojha-Bhagat in the hospital itself. The tantrik who came from Shilam village kept reciting the mantra by sticking a plate on the patient’s back after lighting the incense sticks. This sorcery went on for three hours. Patients and relatives admitted in ICU also continued to bear all this.
A similar incident had come to the fore in this hospital even 3 days ago. After the death of the son of a boy from Hurhuria village due to snakebite, the family members had exorcised Bhagat for hours in the Sadar Hospital premises in the hope of his survival. The hospital management has kept silence on such cases happening continuously in the hospital premises. Although doctors definitely say that whenever a snake bites, one should immediately bring it to the hospital.
Doctor Manoj Surin says that he appeals to the patients of snakebite to be treated in the hospital under proper supervision, but due to superstition people ignore the advice of doctors here. Because of this, the patients reach a more serious condition.
