A BABY boy born with two heads has been put under police protection in Bangladesh because of the curiosity his birth has caused among locals.
The boy, named Kiron, was born by caesarean on Monday weighing 5.5kg in Keshobpur, 135km from Dhaka, gynaecologist Mohamad Abdul Bari said.
"He has one stomach and he is eating normally with his two mouths. He has one genital organ and a full set of limbs," he said.

There is probably a reasonable chance of amputating one of the heads, but then again the gynaecologist only said he has one stomach, there are probably numerous other complications involved.
But his parents could not afford any further medical care and against doctors' advice, they took the child home.
"We wanted to refer him to a hospital in Dhaka but the family was so poor that they could not afford to take him there, so they took him home where he died," paediatrician KS Alam told the AFP news agency.
