The doctors were able to remove the objects from the stomach of the 30-year old man.

Thakur was admitted to the hospital on July 14 after he complained of severe stomach pain.

His mother, Kusma Thakur, had complained to the doctors that her son would ‘grab anything and eat it’, leading them to conduct x-rays on him.
