Self-proclaimed sage and Big Boss Season 10 contestant, Swami Om, on Wednesday, died in a hospital at Delhi, where he was undergoing treatment for COVID-19.
As per reports, the 63-year-old late TV personality caught the virus three months ago and was paralysed later on. He breathed his last on Wednesday morning and his last rites were performed at 3 pm, today.
Om, who called himself a god-man, did not respond well to the treatments. His health worsened after he experienced a paralysis attack post COVID. Since the last 15 days, he was breathing with the help of oxygen support and had little chances of survival due to severe complications, which aroused post paralysis.
Both, COVID-19 and paralysis, weakened his immune and Om died after fighting the battle of life for nearly 40 days. His time in the Big Boss house was filled with controversies. Swami Om gained fame because of his wrongdoings and was one of the most popular characters in the show.
When he crossed his limits of civil behaviour, Salman Khan (host) and the show makers, removed him from the game.
