Bikaner: Rajasthan’s Bikaner police went bananas to recover a gold chain from a snatcher. On Tuesday, two men had snatched the chain from a woman in Gangashahar locality.
Within few hours, the police nabbed the duo and the snatcher had swallowed the chain in a bid to mislead the police, reported Hindustan Times.
The police said, “We took him to PBM Hospital where X-rays showed pieces of gold chain lodged in his gut. Doctors advised us to put him on a course of potassium-rich food and feed him bananas and papaya instead of endoscopic surgery.”
The snatcher was fed more than a dozen bananas and two papayas and waited for him to defecate to recover the chain.
‘Operation Banana’ concluded successfully on Wednesday morning.
Police also have arrested his accomplice and are interrogating both the men to find out if they were involved in other snatching cases.
