RANCHI: The poor medical services in Jharkhand were again highlighted when a man and his sister-in-law carried the dead body of his brother after being denied an ambulance in the state's Chatra district.

According to media reports appearing on Monday, Rajendra Oraon, a resident of Sidpa village of Chatra district, was bitten by a snake. 

He was admitted at Chatra district Sadar hospital for treatment, where he died on Sunday.

Locals have alleged that the treatment was not started on time, leading to his death.

The brother of the dead man and his sister-in-law (bhabhi) then carried the body in their hands. The locals watching the incident kicked up a hue and cry over it.
