The 32-year-old Mohammed Maqsood, from Sohaval in Satna district, was taken to the state-run Sanjay Gandhi Medical College and Hospital on November 18 after he complained of a stomach ache. A team of six doctors examined the 32-year-old and removed 5 kilograms of iron items.
The doctor also said Mr Maqsood had been treated for six months in Satna before he was brought to Rewa. He said a team of six doctors surgically removed 10-12 shaving blades, four big needles, a chain, 263 coins, besides pieces of glasses–collectively weighing 5 kilograms, from the stomach of Mr Maqsood on Friday. “The patient was not in a good state of mind and it seems he swallowed these objects secretly,” Dr Sharma said, adding that Mr Maqsood is doing well and is currently under the observation of a team of experts.
