A man has died after using ultra-strong glue instead of a condom as contraception, it has been reported.
Drug user Salman Mirza, 25, sealed his penis shut with super-strong epoxy resin adhesive while having sex with his partner, police say.
Salman and his partner were sniffing the glue “for a kick” before deciding to use it as a contraceptive during their sex session at the Amber Hotel in Ahmedabad, a city in India’s western state, Gujarat.
Within a day of check-in Salman was found lying unconscious in the “shrubs” in front of the hotel.
He was rushed to hospital but died shortly after.

Officers told the Times of India the pair decided to have sex after taking drugs.
“Since they did not have any protection, they decided to apply the adhesive on his private parts to ensure that she does not get pregnant,” the paper reports.
Salman had the glue with him because the couple would often inhale the fumes, said a senior officer and friends of the deceased.
Since his death, the young man’s family claim it was the former partner who applied the glue to his genitals.

They have filed a complaint with the police accusing his partner of murder.
Police said samples have been sent for forensic examination to work out whether this was the case. An autopsy is also underway.
The 25-year-old’s official cause of death was due to “multiple organ failure”, police say.
Salman was the sole breadwinner of the family, which comprised of his elderly parents and two sisters.
The investigation into his death, which happened in June but has only now been made public, is ongoing.
