KOLKATA: In a bizarre incident, doctors discovered 10 needles stuck inside the throat of a 14-year-old girl based in West Bengal. The incident took place in Nadia district's Krishnanagar city. It was just like another day for 14-year-old Aprupa Biswas, Class 8 student of Krishnanagar Akshay Vidyapith.

After coming back from school, the girl complained of throat ache. Dismissing it as a case of common cold and flu, the girl's mother proceeded to serve lunch. Suddenly while eating, unable to bear pain, Aprupa fell unconscious.

The incident took place nine days ago. Aprupa was immediately rushed to NRS Medical College and Hospital.
