Woman born with an incredible 19 toes and 12 fingers is branded a witch in India

POINT THE FINGER

A woman has told how her neighbours think she is a witch - because she was born with 20 toes and 12 fingers.

Kumar Nayak, 63, was born with the abnormality but said she can't afford any treatment.

She claims neighbours in Ganjam, Odisha, in India, abuse her due to her rare condition.

Kumar said: "I was born with this defect and I couldn't be treated as we belonged to a poor family.

"It has been 63 years I have been in the condition I am today.

The residents nearby believe that I am a witch and keep away from me.

"But sometimes more visitors come to see my condition. I am forced to stay indoors as I am treated differently."

One sympathetic neighbour added: "I know that she has a medical problem and it has nothing to do with what others believe her to be.

"I feel so sorry for her that she can not even afford to get herself treated."
