Police forced an Indian thief to eat dozens of bananas. They wanted him to excrete a gold necklace he had swallowed.

Sheikh Mohsin, 36, grabbed the 45,000-rupee (NT$37,000) necklace from a woman in Kolkata as she shopped for toys on August 4.

He said he didn't steal the necklace, but a stomach X-ray proved otherwise. Police made him eat bananas in hopes of getting the necklace.

At first Mohsin wouldn't dine on his banana feast. When police threatened to cut open his stomach, he began eating.

After 50 bananas, police still didn't have their hands on the necklace. So they fed Mohsin a big meal of rice, chicken and bread.

He finally excreted the necklace on his fifth attempt.

A cleaner was paid 50 rupees (NT$41) to fish out the necklace. Mohsin was then asked to wash it.

Police said Mohsin may face three months in jail for stealing.

警方逼迫一名印度小偷吃下好幾打香蕉,要他把吞下的一條金項鍊給排出來。

三十六歲的席克•莫辛在八月四日,搶了一位女士價值四萬五千印度盧比(約新台幣三萬七千元)的項鍊,當時她正在加爾各答買玩具。

他堅稱沒偷項鍊,但胃部X光片證明了事實正好相反。所以警方才叫他吃香蕉,希望能拿到項鍊。

一開始莫辛還不肯吃他的香蕉大餐,當警方威脅要剖開他的肚子時才開始吃。

但他吃完五十根香蕉後,警方還是沒得到項鍊。所以又餵他吃了一頓大餐,有米飯、雞、和麵包。

他終於在嘗試第五次時將項鍊排出。

一名清潔工受雇以五十盧比的代價(約新台幣四十一元)把項鍊給撈起來,莫辛則被叫去清洗項鍊。

警方說莫辛可能因偷竊而須坐牢三個月。(翻譯:張愛弟)
