Meet boy called devil because of his giant growing hands that reached 30cm and scares locals

A 12-year-old boy in Uttar Pradesh in India, has a mysterious condition that has caused his hands to grow to a massive 30cm long.

Tarik was born with big hands but now they are so huge that local villagers believe he is cursed and call him "devil." He has also been refused admission to schools due to fear that he will scare other children.

His father passed away and his family is unable to afford money to have him tested. His condition is undiagnosed, although doctors speculate that it may be Elephant Foot disease.

Tarik is however optimistic that one day he will be cured. In an interview, he said: "I want to get rid of this condition. I want to become like other kids who go to school every day and play like normal kids. I see a hope that I will get normal hands."

He lives with his brother Hargyan, who takes care of him and helps him perform various tasks such as eating, bathing and even putting on clothes.

His family has appealed for help and is optimistic that medical science will change his condition for the better.
