Height of stupidity!Place: Anti-terrorism Court, Karachi (Pakistan)
Characters: Hon'ble Judge, Two Police Constables
Prop: A live grenade
When happened: Last to last week
The Court proceeding was going on in full swing. Hon'ble judge was presiding over the proceeding. He asked one of the Constables to give a live demo of working of a grenade. The obedient and respectful Constable asked his colleague to hand over a grenade, which were kept as exhibits. A grenade was handed over.
As Pakistanis are extremely proud and confident people, nobody had bothered to check whether the grenade was live or not. The obedient Constable took the grenade , pooled off the pin of the grenade and held the live grenade in his hand.
But before verbal demonstration by the Constable, three seconds elapsed. Boom.....! The grenade exploded. The obedient Constable and his confident colleague were greivously injured and admitted to a city hospital. They were accompanied by the Court clerk and another person. Hon'ble Pakistani Judge fell from his chair and his trousers became wet and yellow.
