New Delhi:

In a bizarre case, doctors in Uttar Pradesh's Muzaffarnagar found 63 steel spoons in the stomach of a patient. The operation took place at a private hospital in Uttar Pradesh's Muzaffarnagar district.

The patient, Vijay, was a drug addict who had been admitted to a de-addiction center. On being asked by the doctors, Vijay said that he had been eating spoons for a year.

"We asked him if he ate those spoons and he agreed. Operation lasted for around 2 hours, he is currently in ICU. Patient has been eating spoons for 1 year," Dr Rakesh Khurrana told ANI.

But his family alleges that Vijay was forcibly fed the spoons by the staff at the center. No complaint has been filed yet.

The 32-year-old was brought to the hospital after his health deteriorated. When they operated on him, doctors found 63 steel spoons in his stomach.

The doctors have removed all the spoons, but have kept him under observation. His condition is still serious, doctors say.
