Uttar Pradesh, June 2: In a tragic incident, a 23-year-old migrant worker after walking 2,000 kilometres for 12 days from Bengaluru to his home town in Uttar Pradesh died after being bitten by a snake. According to a Times of India report, the young man after reaching his village in Gonda district gave his mother a hug and had stepped into the field to wash up after his long journey. It was then that he was bitten by the snake.
His mother has been into a shock as he was eagerly waiting for his son to return. The decision to walk several kilometres was taken after his contractors didn't pay him and others for two months. They walked by the night to dodge the cops and after he finally reached UP, he was taken to the quarantine centre where he stayed for a few days. On May 26, he finally reached home and everyone was ecstatic to see him. He stepped on to the fields and was found dead within an hour.
