Giridih: Social worker Harilal Manjhi said that the deceased Budhan Birhor (60), father of late Fagu Birhor, went to the forest to graze goats on Wednesday morning without having any breakfast.

He started feeling dizzy in the forest at around 11:00 pm.

Feeling unwell, he came home and slept in his house without eating or drinking anything.

In the evening, when his daughter-in-law and daughter came home, they saw that their father Budhan Foam was coming out of Birhor’s nose and mouth.
