While Kamala died early Saturday while undergoing treatment at NRI Hospital in Mangalagiri in Guntur district, Nagamani succumbed at a corporate hospital in Vijayawada a few hours later.

Doctors said the women died of rabies. The infection had spread and lack of proper treatment caused their death, according to IANS.

Kamala, wife of a retired conductor in Andhra Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation S. Bhagyarao and Nagmani, wife of a Registered Medical Practitioner (RMP) B. Babu Rao were bitten by the same cat.

According to villagers, the cat was infected by rabies as it was bitten by a rabid dog earlier. The cat also died subsequently.
