New Delhi, Feb 5 (IANS) A woman who lives in Kadapada village of Ganjam district in Odisha was born with 12 fingers and 19 toes. She is doing the rounds on the social media as she is all set to enter the Guinness World Records.
The previous record-holder was Devendra Suthar of Gujarat who has 28 digits (14 fingers and as many toes). Branded as a witch in her village, the 65-year-old woman barely leaves her house in Ganjam because strangers have abused her for her abnormality, local reports say.
