The police in Mumbai successfully deployed a very clever and unusual technique to retrieve a gold chain that a thief had swallowed while officers were chasing him.– they force-fed him more than 40 bananas.
According to reports, the police believed that the man snatched the chain from a woman in the street in Mumbai and swallowed it in a desperate bid to conceal his crime. The man denied swallowing the chain but hospital X-rays proved that the chain was actually in his stomach.
Mumbai Police administered an enema that failed to yield the desired result.
Doctors said an operation would be the best way forward, but police officers decided it would be too expensive and opted instead for the bananas.
“He was fed more than 40 bananas throughout the day,” Mumbai police Senior Inspector Shankar Dhanavade told news agency AFP.
“Eventually the chain was found. We made him wash and disinfect it,” the policeman added.
What an ingenious way!!!
