According to the report, the police became suspicious when the man, Sy Allen, 30, refused to let the police officers check him.

He even refused to eat and drink anything.

Officers waited more than three weeks days for nature to take its course. He remained under constant supervision and was visited by a doctor every day, but refused to accept medical help or go to the toilet until he became unwell.

At last, his condition became worse and he was transferred to hospital, where doctors found 44 wraps.

He later admitted the crime and got jailed for 32 months.
