This has prompted her family to consider her as the incarnation of the goddess Dholagarh Devi.

A baby girl in Rajasthan’s Deeg district was born with 26 fingers instead of the normal 20 (10 fingers and 10 toes).

The newborn has seven fingers on each hand and six toes on each leg.

This has prompted her family to consider her as the incarnation of the goddess Dholagarh Devi.

While her family embraced her as a divine embodiment, medical professionals identified this as a rare condition caused by genetic disorder.

“The girl has seven fingers in each hand and six toes in each leg. The condition is called Polydactyly, which is rare but there is no harm or side effect of this condition on the body,” Dr BS Soni, doctor at the CHC Kaman said.

The girl was born at community health centre in Kaman on Sunday night. The mother and the baby girl are healthy, Dr Soni said.

The family members said that the girl was a blessing to the family and an incarnation of goddess Dholagarh Devi.
