The doctors at a government hospital in West Bengal’s Birbhum district removed 1.5 kg coins and ornaments from the stomach of a mentally unstable woman.

Siddhartha Biswas, head of the surgery department at Rampurhat Government Medical College and Hospital, informed that ninety coins of Rs 10 and Rs 5, ornaments like nose rings, earrings, chains, bangles, anklets, wrist bands, and watches were removed from the stomach of a 26-year-old woman.

“Most of the ornaments found in her stomach were made of copper and brass but some golden jewellery was also there,” said Biswas.

The woman is a resident of Margram village. The mother of the woman informed that she was mentally unsound and was throwing up after every meal from the last few days.

Further, she said that she noticed that the ornaments were disappearing from her home. But whenever the family asked the woman about it, she used to start crying.

“We used to keep a watch on her. Somehow she managed to swallow all these. She was unwell for two months. We took her to various private doctors and she was on medication with no improvement in her health,” the mother said.
