You may want to read general request body reading guidelines here:

Your code suggests you've never seen these guidelines, so consider 
re-writing it after reading the above link.

Note that the above guidelines cover content phase handling.  In 
other request processing phases reqding the request body might be 
tricky and will require additional handling (if at all possible).  
In particular, you'll have to restore request phases processing 
after the call, and you might have to call 
ngx_http_finalize_request() yourself.  Consider looking into 
src/http/modules/ngx_http_mirror_module.c for an example.  Note 
well that required handling might depend on the exact request 
processing phase you are trying to use.

Note well that if you are trying to inspec the request body, 
writing a request body filter might be a better solution.  See 
here for a trivial example:
