Deepak Kumar Paswaan has the nickname “Octoboy” after he was born with his own undeveloped twin growing out of his chest. The twin stopped developing in the womb before fully separating from Paswaan before he was born. For the next 8 years the boy lived with his brother undeveloped brother growing out of him. While some people thought it was a very unusual condition others thought the boy was holy, and could of been a reincarnation of an Indian god. Whilst some people worshipped the boy and belived he was a god others thought he was a monster, and feared him – In fear of the child some people had thrown stones at him.
After 8 years, the boy was old enough to undergo surgery to remove the twin from his chest. In a recent television special, doctors from Bangalore, India seperated Deepak from his undeveloped conjoined twin surgically. He and his family had appealed several times for the money to pay for the surgery and finally had success for it back in February last year, he was booked in and went in for the surgery in June.
