Surgeons in India remove 40 knives from inside a man who was suffering from a stomach ache in the Indian city of Amritsar. Report by Conor Mcnally. A team of doctors successfully removed 40 knives from a man's stomach in Amritsar, Saturday, after five hours of surgery. Surjeet Singh, a policeman, required five hours of surgery to remove the knives, which he said he had felt an 'urge' to eat.

Singh went to the hospital complaining of stomach ache and excessive weight loss. An ultrasound revealed the solid mass in his stomach and a biopsy showed dozens of the sharp knives inside him. Dr Jitendra Malhotra, who carried out the surgery with a team of four doctors, said the case was unlike anything else he had witnessed in his career.
