The man in question, has been identified as Azher Hussain. He went to the vaccination centre at Behrampur Imambara Madarsa, along with his friend Aman Khan, to take the first dose.
The nurse, jabbed the syringe into Hussin`s arm without filling the COVID vaccine and the entire process was captured into the mobile phone by Aman Khan. Funnily enough, neither of the men noted that the syringe was empty.
Later, when they saw the video at home that a shocked Hussain realised that an empty syringe was injected into his arm.
