His mother, Kusma Thakur, said her son would ”grab anything and eat it”

Kusma was however astonished when objects such as a knife, screwdriver, razor blades and plastic items were found inside Thakur’s stomach when x-ray was conducted.

According to the doctors, it’s likely he suffers with acuphagia, a disorder in which people eat sharp or metal objects and other items they can’t digest.

Two days after, the objects were extracted during a surgery.

The doctor who performed the surgery, MNS Khare, said: ‘It was a rather difficult surgery as he suffered from hypertension [high blood pressure].

‘We were shocked and surprised to find over thirty sharp objects inside his abdomen.’

Dr Khare said Mr Thakur is currently recovering and will be discharged within the next five days.
