A patient is alleged to have bled to death after rats nibbled his penis in a government run hospital in Kolkata, India.

The horrific incident happened at the SSKM Hospital on Friday where Arun Sandhukh, 53, was receiving treatment for pneumonia.

Family members visiting Arun discovered him dead in a pool of blood.

“No nurse was found at the scene and he was writhing in pain. His penis had been nibbled by rats,” a relative only known as Bishwanath said.

Hospital authorities admitted the presence of rats in the wards but did not comment further.
