Doctors Find 12 Gold Bars Inside A Businessman During Operation

A 63-year-old businessman shocked doctors after they found 12 gold bars inside his stomach during an operation.The Indian man was  admitted into  hospital for vomiting after he said he had swallowed a bottle cap from a water bottle and wanted it removed from his body. After complaining of pain and vomiting, he was operated upon and 12 gold bars, each weighing 33g were discovered in his stomach rather than a bottle cap.
Senior consulting surgeon at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital in Dehli Dr C S Ramachandran told the Indian Express:

    'He approached us on April 7 seeking surgery to remove a water bottle cap which he claimed he had accidentally swallowed. We got an X-ray done and it didn’t appear to be a cap. As the gold bars got stacked one behind the other it appeared to be a metal. We were shocked to find not one but 12 gold biscuits in his abdomen .If it had stayed inside for a  couple  more days, it would have led to severe bleeding and rupture of the intestine and septicemia.'

Customs officials have questioned the man and the gold has been confiscated.
