This crazy incident reportedly happened last week, when Mumbai policemen saw a man snatching a gold chain from a woman and started to chase him. The thief, to conceal his crime, swallowed the chain and when caught denied the crime. The cops took him straight to a clinic and spotted the  chain in an X-ray. Now, how to recover the booty? After a couple of enemas failed, doctors suggested surgery to retrieve the stolen jewelry. But who will bear the surgery cost? Instead, the policemen resorted to a ‘cheap’ idea and forced him to have, as it is reported, 48 bananas, after which the criminal passed the necklace.
