Amid the Coronavirus pandemic and other health-related diseases, it is important to maintain hygiene in our surroundings. But few people don’t take cleanliness seriously and play with others' health too. One such shocking video has surfaced on the Internet wherein an unidentified vegetable vendor can be seen cleaning green coriander in drain water.
After the video went viral Madhya Pradesh police came into action and booked the man in Bhopal, an official said on Tuesday.
The incident took place in Sindhi Market in Bhopal. The man who recorded the unhygienic act of the vegetable vendor can be heard telling the accused that washing vegetable in drain water is harmful. He also urged social media users not to purchase vegetables from this man.
The viral video was shared by a Twitter user named Sudhir Dandotiya.
