In the latest development in the case where a piece of human finger was found in a Mumbai-based man's cone of ice cream that he ordered online, police suspect that the human flesh may be of a person working in a factory in Pune. A Mumbai-based man was appalled to find a piece of flesh, apparently a severed human thumb, in the frozen dessert that he ordered online on Wednesday afternoon.

According to the Mumbai Police, a man was reported injured in a Pune factory and his injuries are said to be identical to that of a thumb found in the ice cream. Police have conducted DNA and medical examination of the injured person.

The complainant, Brendon Ferrao (26), is a doctor with an MBBS degree and is a resident of the Malad area in the metropolis. "In his complaint, he said that he ordered a butterscotch ice cream cone from Yummo company through an e-Commerce app. While consuming the ice cream after lunch, he found a piece of flesh with a nail in it," a police official said.

The man, who is pursuing his post-graduate studies, then took up the matter with the ice cream company by complaining about it on its Instagram page. But since there was no proper response from the firm, the complainant put the piece of flesh in an ice bag and approached the Malad police station, where he complained, the official said.

Based on his complaint, the police registered a case under Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections 272 (adulteration of food or drink intended for sale), 273 (sale of noxious food and drink) and 336 (act endangering life or personal safety of others), against Yummo ice cream company officials, he said.

"The piece of flesh, suspected to be a piece of human finger, has been sent for forensic examination to ascertain whether it is a part of the human body," the official said. Speaking to media persons about the incident, complainant Ferrao said that while eating the ice cream, he found a big piece in his mouth and initially thought it to be a nut.
