  • Singh claimed that he had been eating knives over the past two months and he is experiencing abdominal pain and weakness
  • Following Singh’s successful treatment, five surgeons successfully carried out a five-hour surgery

A team of five surgeons successfully carried out a five-hour surgery after a 42-year-old Indian man swallowed 40 metal knives, claiming that he had an “uncontrollable urge to eat knives.”

“This was very unnerving, I have not witnessed something like this in my career as a doctor,” Dr. Jitinder Malhorta stated, adding that it was the most dreadful surgery he had seen in his 20 years of experience.

Jarnail Singh claimed that he had been eating knives over the past two months and was admitted to The Corporate Hospital in Gurdaspur, India after his complaints on experiencing abdominal pain and weakness.

“We did an ultrasound, which revealed some solid mass in his stomach, shaped like cancer,” Malhorta explained.

The man’s unusual case left the surgeons in astonishment since he had not only swallowed one or two knives but 40 which would cause any person to be amazed after hearing the news.

Following Singh’s successful treatment, he will be discharged from the hospital in the next few days.
