Trinamool Congress (TMC) member of Parliament Mimi Chakraborty has fallen sick, just four days after taking a COVID-19 vaccine dose that is reportedly fake.
Hindustan Times Bangla reported that Chakraborty's medical complications include acute stomach ache and profuse sweating.
A physician was called to her residence this morning. Chakraborty has been advised to get admitted to a hospital, but she has decided to get treated at home.
The actor-turned-politician said she became suspicious about the vaccination drive in Kolkata as she did not receive the SMS people receive after taking a shot and informed the police.
PTI reported that the Kolkata police arrested three more associates of fake IAS officer Debanjan Deb on June 26, in connection with three dubious COVID-19 vaccination drives in Kolkata.
Deb was arrested on June 23 for posing as an IAS officer and organising a COVID-19 vaccination camp in the Kasba area.
In a video posted on her Instagram account, Chakraborty said that while the vaccines administered were fake, they were not harmful.
"Samples have been sent to the lab and we will know what was in the vaccines in the next 4-5 days. I've talked to officials and from what I gathered it can be said that there was nothing harmful in the vials but we all know they weren't vaccines. We can say this conclusively once the lab results come back," The TMC MP said.Track our LIVE blog for the latest updates on coronavirus pandemic
