He said a team of six doctors surgically removed 10-12 shaving blades, four big needles, a chain, 263 coins, besides pieces of glasses--collectively weighing 5 kilograms, from the stomach of Mr Maqsood. The doctor also said Mr Maqsood had been treated for six months in Satna before he was brought to Rewa.

"The patient was not in a good frame of mind and it seems he swallowed these objects secretly," Dr Sharma said, adding that Mr Maqsood is doing well and is currently under the observation of a team of experts.†
