MUMBAI: A man from Malad area in Mumbai has complained that he found a piece of flesh with a nail in an ice cream cone that he ordered online, police said on Thursday.

Although it is suspected to be a piece of human finger, it has been sent for an examination, they said.

The incident occurred on Wednesday afternoon, the police said.

"The complainant in the case, a 26-year-old doctor with MBBS degree who stays in Malad west, had ordered a butterscotch ice-cream cone of Yummo company.

While consuming the ice-cream after lunch, he came across a half an inch long piece of flesh with a nail in the ice cream," he said.

The man, who is pursuing his post-graduate studies, took up the matter and lodged a complaint with the ice cream company on its Instagram page, he said.

But since there was no appropriate response from the company, the complainant put the piece of flesh in an ice bag and approached the Malad police station, the official said.

Based on his complaint, the police registered a case against Yummo ice cream company officials, he said.

"The piece of flesh, suspected to be a piece of human finger, has been sent for forensic examination to ascertain whether it is a part of the human body," the official said, adding that a probe in the case is underway.
