A seven-year-old girl who weeps stones is baffling doctors who are unable to say what is causing the phenomenon.
Tamil Nesan reported that stones had been discharging from Kura Nitya’s right eye for the past 15 days.
Nitya, from a village near Hyderabad, has been weeping about 12 to 25 stones a day.
Her parents have approached several ophthalmologists who were unable to diagnose what was causing the problem.
According to her grandfather Gopal Reddy, the stones began popping out on Oct 26.
‘Initially, we thought it was some divine power and prayed to God for this phenomenon to stop,’ he said, adding that they were keeping the stones for medical tests, if required.
Nitya said the lower portion of her right eye swelled minutes before the stones painlessly popped out.
Ophthalmologist Dr Kalyan Chakaravarthy said Nitya was medically fit and there was no logical reason for the phenomenon.
