Further investigations revealed the 56-year-old had dozens more pieces inside other parts of his body

Neither the patient nor his family had any idea how the needles ended up there, but they were clearly inserted deliberately, medics said.

It has been reported that none of the hospitals the family have visited so far have been willing to carry out the operation to remove the pins.

Instead he has been forced to lie in a hospital bed awaiting surgery.

Badrilal Meena (pictured) is currently in a bed in Mumbai’s railway hospital 

The patient, who works for a local railway company, is currently in a bed in Mumbai’s railway hospital.

Of the 75 pins, 40 of them are in his throat, 25 in his right leg and two in both of the arms.

His son Rajendra said they had wanted to have the foot operation because his father had been in pain, and they had only realised later that it was caused by the pins.

He said: ‘We got so scared after seeing the pictures. We don’t know how the pins got inside his body.

‘I have asked him several times, but he has no memory of it.’
