My face was eaten by a WOLF: Teen who was attacked and disfigured by predator as a baby is dubbed ‘Ghost Boy’ by cruel villagers in India

  • Amrish, 18, of India, was left heavily scarred after a wolf attacked him as a baby
  • He said he is called ‘ghost boy’ by neighbours and children who are afraid of him 

A teenager who was mauled by a wolf as a baby has spoken about being shunned by neighbours and schoolmates who call him ‘ghost boy’.

Amrish, 18, of India, was left with a heavily scarred face and two of his bottom teeth protruding from his mouth after he was attacked by a wolf as a five-month-old baby.

He said he is now unable to eat properly and is often shunned by neighbours and other children who call him ‘ghost boy’ because they are afraid of him.

He added: ‘Children and people are afraid of me. Because of this I didn’t even get admission to school earlier.’

Amrish also said his family couldn’t afford plastic surgery to help with the scarring as it would cost too much.

But he added: ‘My friends love me so much and they always take care of me.’

His mother took him out to where she was working in some fields on the day he was attacked by the wolf. 

She turned around during a break while working and suddenly saw a wolf ‘eating’ Amrish’s face. 

He was taken to a nearby government hospital in Madhya Pradesh, India, where doctors were able to save his life.

He later underwent an operation on his face in 2012 – but was still left with visible scarring and has to wear a mask.
