What doctors found inside a man after he complained of a stomach ache made them call police.

The man went to a hospital earlier this month in Delhi, India and told doctors he accidentally swallowed a water bottle cap.

X-rays showed something bigger.

During surgery, doctors found 12 gold bars, worth an estimated $23,000.

Customs officials questioned the man and the gold was confiscated.

Officials believe he may have been trying to avoid paying an import tax on the gold.
