Winged Beetles-Indian Legends and Stories that Actually Happened

One of the most famous urban legends is insects and bugs infesting inside a human body. This legend came as a shocking truth for the parents of 13-year-old Chandan Goswami of West Bengal in June 17, 2003. Chandan Goswami began producing winged beetles in his urine after the eggs hatched inside his body. The information came directly from the state’s medical education director, Dr. Chittaranjan Maity. He told reporters insects appeared to be hatching in a fistula near the boy’s groin, where the doctors were focusing their efforts on killing the egg. A few days later, another boy in West Bengal was hospitalized with complaints of live dung beetles emerging out of his rectum.
