A woman has been labelled a 'witch' by her superstitious neighbours thanks to her world record breaking total of 31 fingers and toes.

Kumari Nayak, 63, has 19 toes and 12 fingers, meaning she will go in the Guinness Book of Records for having the most digits in the world.

Kumari, who hails from Odisha in India, has achieved a respectable amount of fame thanks to her remarkable digits, but claims people in her town call her a 'witch' and avoid her in the street.

She said: "I was born with this defect and I couldn't be treated as we belonged to a poor family. It has now been 63 years that I have had this condition.

"The residents nearby, who are too much into blind faiths, believe that I am a witch and keep away from me. They sometimes come to see my condition - but never help.

Kumari doesn't have enough money to pay for treatment to get any of her fingers or toes removed or treated, so she feels forced to stay in her home.

However, since hearing about Kumari's situation, government officials in India have reached out to help her.

She has been offered a new home and a pension so that she can live comfortably from now on. They have also said that they will try to raise awareness among her neighbours, to make life more pleasant and less lonely for Kumari, whose condition had already developed by the time she was born.
