What the Mumbai resident alleges about the ice cream

The 26-year-old doctor, resident of Mumbai's Malad, alleged that he found a piece of a human finger inside the ice cream cone he ordered via a quick commerce platform.

On Wednesday night, the Mumbai family ordered three ice creams - two mango-flavoured and one butterscotch. When Brendan Ferrao, the complainant's brother, bit into the butterscotch ice cream, he felt something unusual in his mouth. Upon looking more closely, he discovered to his horror the severed human finger embedded inside the ice cream cone.

The family immediately approached the police with the foreign body.

“We received a complaint stating that a piece of flesh was found in the ice cream ordered online. We have taken the piece of flesh for investigation. A case under sections 272, 273, and 336 of the Indian Penal Code, has been registered against the ice cream company. We are investigating the case,” Ravi Adane, Senior Police Inspector, Malad Police Station, was quoted.
