Indian schoolboy Mohammad Kaleem is no longer able to go school because he was being bullied over his giant deformed hands.
Kaleem’s hands now weigh 8kg each, and measure 13 inches from the end of his middle fingers to the bottom of his palms.
According to The Sun, Shamim said money had been so tight in the family that his wife has sometimes been forced to beg for money.
The paper quotes the 45-year-old as saying: "I blame myself. I have two children but I am so poor that I cannot even take care of their upbringing."
