Banana justice served

Thanks deity, there are still some corners of the world where political correctness is held at bay.

An Indian suspect was forced by police to eat 50 bananas as a laxative, to retrieve a necklace he was accused of stealing and swallowing. When the bananas failed to produce the desired effect, police fed Sheikh Mohsin rice, chicken and local bread. Finally the necklace, which appeared on an X-ray taken on the suspect, was excreted and retrieved.
I can imagine the legal brouhaha that would have resulted in Israeli or other enlightened court of justice had the police came up with an idea like that. Most probably the suspect would have been stopped up by his lawyer forever...

And more justice:
A sweeper was paid to retrieve the exhibit from the toilet. Mr Mohsin was asked to wash it.
