In a bizarre 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 with 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.
