'Thought it was a nut': Mumbai doctor finds human finger in ice cream

Mumbai: In a shocking incident, a doctor in Mumbai discovered a human finger in an ice cream he ordered online, media reports said.

Doctor Orlem Brandon Serrao, who resides in suburban Malad, had asked his sister to include some ice creams in her online grocery order, reported NDTV.

While he was savouring the ice cream, he felt something in his mouth, which felt like a nut, but to his horror and dismay—it was actually a human finger.

A photo shared online shows a human finger sticking out of the ice cream.

In a video statement, Serrao shared his distressing experience, adding that he luckily did not swallow it.

"I had ordered three cone ice creams from an app. One of them was a butterscotch ice cream from the Yummo brand. After eating half of it, I felt a solid piece in my mouth. I thought it could be a nut or a chocolate piece and spat it out to check what it was," said Dr Serrao.

A close look at the "solid piece" left him traumatized.

"I am a doctor so I know what body parts look like. When I carefully examined it, I noticed the nails and fingerprint impressions under it. It resembled a thumb. I am traumatized," he said.

Dr. Serrao immediately placed the object in an ice pack to preserve it for the police and filed a complaint with the Malad police.

A case has been registered against Yummo for food adulteration and endangering human life.

The police have sent the ice cream for examination and the finger for forensic analysis.

The discovery of a body part in the food item has also raised suspicions of a more serious crime, which the police are currently investigating.

Yummo Ice Creams, launched in 2012, was co-founded by Walko Food Co. Ltd.
