A team of doctors removed 40 knives from an Indian man's stomach.

The 42-year-old patient, referred to as Jarnail Singh, is a police head constable, according to The Times of India. When admitted to the hospital, he complained of stomach pain and weakness.

"Patient's ultrasound revealed a growth in his stomach," Dr. Jatinder Malhotra, managing director of the hospital Singh was admitted to, said. "To confirm the diagnosis, an endoscopy was done which showed a few metallic knives inside the stomach."

Singh told doctors he swallowed 40 knives of different sizes in the past two months.

A police officer saw a young black couple drive by and pulled them over. What he did next left them stunned:

He did this because “he liked the way they tasted,” according to a report by Barcroft Media via The Telegraph.

He is believed to suffer from a psychological problem.

A team of surgeons, physicians and critical-care doctors operated on Singh to remove the knives, The Times of India reports.

"In my 20 years of practice, this is the most dreadful surgery I have ever seen or done," Malhotra said.

Singh is expected to make a full recovery.
