However, Behera accidentally swallowed the fish as it created rapid movements and went inside his stomach.
Amid suffocation, he was rushed to the Bhapur Community Health Centre, where he breathed his last while undergoing treatment. The body was handed over to the family members after post-mortem.
Police have registered an unnatural death case and started investigation.
