The patient, identified only by his first name, Vijay, was rushed to a hospital at the weekend after complaining of severe stomach pain and had undergone a two-hour-long operation in a private hospital.
Dr. Rakesh Khurana, the doctor who operated upon Vijay, told ANI, “We asked him if he ate those spoons and he agreed. The operation lasted for around 2 hours and he is currently in ICU. The patient has been eating spoons for 1 year.” But his family alleged that Vijay was forcibly fed the spoons by the staff at the de-addiction center.
The man was unable to eat or drink and complained of feeling weak at the time of admission, prompting doctors to take X-rays and CT scans to determine the cause of the pain,
a doctor informed. The doctor further informed that the man broke the head off the spoons before consumption. They believe that the patient is suffering from a psychological condition,
