Bangladesh's 'tree man' has begged doctors to relieve him of his unbearable pain and amputate his hands which are covered in bark-like growths.

Abul Bajandar, 28, has had 25 operations since 2016 to remove growths on his hands and feet caused by a rare condition. 

The former rickshaw driver was overjoyed when doctors seemed to have treated his condition, after cutting off 11lbs (5kg) of growths.

But the father-of-one was readmitted to hospital in January because the condition worsened, with some growths several inches long.

He has made international headlines in his battle against epidermodysplasia verruciformis, thought to strike only 200 people worldwide.

Mr Bajandar told AFP: 'I cannot bear the pain anymore. I can't sleep at night. I asked the doctors to cut off my hands so I can at least get some relief.'

His mother Amina Bibi said: 'At least he will be free of pain. It's a hellish condition.'

Doctors had believed they had beaten Mr Bajandar's disease in 2017, at which point Mr Bajandar said: 'I hope the curse won't return again.'
