Tragedy struck Anduvane village in Chikkamagaluru taluk as a woman, seemingly recovering after a snake bite, tragically passed away on the third day following the incident. Sujata (54), a resident of Huigere Gramm Subdivision in Andavane, was bitten by a venomous snake while working near her house. 

Immediately after the incident, she received treatment at the local primary health centre and was subsequently admitted to Koppa Public Hospital for further care. Her husband, Venkatesh Gowda, rushed her to the hospital and ensured she received the necessary treatment.

Her unexpected decline in health took everyone by surprise, leading to her unfortunate demise. Sujata is survived by her daughter.
