When she was unable to eat or drink anything for a few days, the teenager was examined at the Maharaja Yeshwantrao Hospital in Indore last month.

The girl loved to eat her hair and chalk. Doctors operated upon her and a huge hairball was removed from her stomach.

The girl is on the road to recovery.
