Last month, a button battery was taken into Kothrud\'s home.
Instead of seeing a doctor immediately, her parents chose to treat them at home.
However, the corrosive substances in the battery seriously affected her food tube and she had to undergo surgery to repair the damage.
The use of battery buttons in the home is increasing and the handling is not careful, which makes it easier for children to accidentally swallow these round and silver objects than ever before.
The button battery is used for toys and other household appliances such as calculators and even watches.
