Police in India have blamed rats for destroying nearly 200kg of cannabis seized and kept in police stations.
A court in Uttar Pradesh State in the country heard how the animals had in some cases eaten the marijuana being kept as evidence.
The judge cited three cases in which marijuana was destroyed by rodents.
According to UK’s Evening Standard on Thursday, the police claimed that the animals didn’t fear police, thus making it difficult for police to protect the exhibit from them.
Part of the statement read in the court said, “Rats are tiny animals and they have no fear of the police. It’s difficult to protect the drug from them.”
