Bolangir: In yet another case of black magic in hospital premises, family members of a 15-year-old boy, who died of snake bite, took help of a sorcerer to resurrect the deceased in Bolangir district headquarter hospital Wednesday.

The deceased has been identified as Madhu Payasingh of Digasira village under Sindhekela police limits in the district.

According to sources, Madhu was bitten by a snake and was admitted in critical condition to Bolangir district headquarter hospital.

Even as Madhu was declared dead by doctors, his family members didn't let the body for post-mortem and instead called for a black magician believing that he would be able to spew life into the dead boy.

Asked about the incident, hospital authorities said they were unaware about it.
