A man in India who illegally had 11 Covid-19 jabs in less than a year has threatened to kill himself if police prosecute him.

Brahamdev Mandal has gone into hiding in a bid to avoid charges of misleading the health department, with police now conducting raids in the country to arrest the 84-year-old.

The serial-vaxxer was able to sign up for extra jabs by using different people’s IDs and lying to health officials.

On Sunday January 9, police showed up at his home in Bihar’s Madhepura District and since then his phone had been switched off.

Mr. Mandal has asked the Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi to clear him of the charges.

The wife of Mr. Mandal, Nirmala Devi, has accused the police of harassing her and defended her husband. She told TOI that her husband was suffering from various diseases and difficulties to stand or walk, but after taking the shots he became cured.

The 84-year-old had the 11 vaccines in just 11 months and even had two within half an hour of each other on the same day.

He said he wanted to feel stronger during the pandemic, and claimed the multiple jabs rid him of his joint pain he has had for eight years.

Two doses of Covid-19 vaccines are required for adults in most countries to be considered ‘fully vaccinated,’ with a third ‘booster’ jab becoming more common in order to enhance immunity.

However, eleven doses are not recommended by health bodies.
