Ankara, July 1: A 39-year-old imam in Turkey has been suspended after doctors reportedly found “pieces of cucumber” in his rectum during a checkup. The imam, who is from a Central Atolian province, was admitted to hospital last week after suffering from severe abdomil pain and bleeding, Hurriyet Daily News reported on Friday. It was only then that doctors allegedly removed pieces of cucumber from his rectum, with the official diagnosis recorded as “bleeding in the anus and rectum and foreign object in the rectum”. The imam was discharged the following day, but word of his “bizarre mishap” made its way to the local press and he was subsequently suspended. (IANS)
