Azamgarh: In a bizzare incident, a knife,
spoon and a pair of toothbrushes were recovered from the
stomach of a 25-year-old mentally unstable woman when she was
operated upon at a private nursing home in the city.

Seema, mother of two children, was admitted to the
nursing home on Saturday after she complained of severe stomach
ache, doctor Amir Alam, who conducted the operation said.

He said after the woman was admitted, her X-ray report
indicated the presence of some objects in the stomach.

"Things taken out from Seema`s stomach include a six-inch
knife, four-inch long spoon and two toothbrushes of six inches
each," Alam said, adding that the woman was recovering well.

He claimed that Seema was mentally unstable and
preliminary information indicated that due to some domestic
problems she might have swallowed the objects.
