According to the Hindustan Times: The man was admitted to Lal Bhadur Shastri Government Medical College in Mandi district’s Ner Chowk after he complained of acute abdominal pain. The man, who has been identified as 35-year-old Karan Sen, was said to be suffering from schizophrenia for the past two decades.

A couple of days back, Sen complained of a cyst protrusion in his belly, following which he was taken to a local hospital in Sundernagar. The doctor there, after making an incision, found a screwdriver in his stomach. He was then immediately referred to Lal Bhadur Shastri College in Mandi district.

Sen’s X-ray and Radiography uncovered that he had a few outside things inside his stomach.

“It took nearly four hours for the team of surgeons to operate upon Karan, “ said Lal Bhadur Shastri Medical College principal Dr Rajneesh Pathania.

Pathania further added: “He is out of danger now. This was a first of its kind surgery in the college. The team removed eight spoons, two screwdrivers, two toothbrushes, a kitchen knife and a door latch from the stomach of the man,”
