Man steals nurse's chain, gulps it down

A mentally challenged man reportedly swallowed a gold chain after stealing it from a nurse at McGann Hospital here on Monday. 

The man, Abhishekh, 30, a resident of Aldur, Chikkamagaluru district, was brought to the hospital in an ambulance after he was attacked by villagers at Basavapura in Shivamogga taluk when he tried to rob a woman of her gold chain. 

Once in the hospital, he is said to have snatched the gold chain of a nurse treating her and then swallowed it. The hospital staff managed to retrieve the chain from his mouth, but the pendant remains in his stomach. 

The Doddapete police have registered a case and are investigating it.
