Bees attack six persons in separate incidents at Davorlim


At least six people are undergoing treatment at the Hospicio hospital, Margao, after they were stung by honeybees at Davorlim.
Police sources informed TOI that after two persons were stung by bees from a beehive built in a house on Thursday evening, the locals sought the help of a volunteer from the wildlife rescue squad to drive away the bees.
On Friday morning, while the volunteer was attempting to set fire to the beehive, the bees attacked the man and the three others who were present. All four were immediately rushed to the hospital.
Acting on the complaint lodged by some locals, the police arrested Vithal Patil, in whose house the beehive was present, and later released him on bail. He was charged under Section 337 (causing hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others) of the IPC. [TOI]
