When asked about the reason of eating knives, the man, reported to be a police officer, said he ‘felt like eating them’. This episode even made surgeons anxious as they were frightened to conduct the surgery because it was very risky and could have endangered his life.

“This was very unnerving, not witnessed something like this in my career as a doctor,” said Dr. Jitendra Malhotra, surgeon who operated upon the man.
