I read a report in yesterday’s newspaper (Pickpocket Held) that made me laugh. It began innocuously enough. A pickpocket, Kannan (age: 20) of Thoppumpady, was arrested during the course of practicing his profession. So far, so good. Then came this unexpected conclusion to the report:
The Central Police have also registered a case for attempting to commit suicide against him after he tried to smash the screen of the computer at the police station using his head.
My diagnosis is pent-up frustration and rage, not attempted suicide, but what do I know?
This sounds like something straight out of Kafka. 🙂
