Asansol: A man, who shot a video that showed a couple of dead bodies lying unattended for hours in the COVID-19 ward of the hospital where he had been kept, has landed him in trouble. After Union minister of state for environment, forest and climate change, Babul Supriyo, shared the man's contact number on his social media page, the man has been receiving random calls threatening him of “dire consequences”.

"This is a shocking video...Since this VDO is in the public domain, I wud request Honble WBCM @MamataOfficial to conduct a thorough enquiry into it & release the FACTs asap," the minister wrote on the micro-blogging site.

The 24-year-old man is fearing for his life after the tweet went viral.

Somnath Das was admitted to the MR Bangur Hospital in Kolkata as a suspected coronavirus case. But Das tested negative and was discharged on Tuesday.

Das told media that  he is from Asansol, Supriyo’s Lok Sabha constituency, but does not personally know the MP.
