The Knuckleheads of the Day award
Today's winners are Sunit Kumar and the police department of Muzzafarpur India. They get the award for the following.
KOLKATA (Reuters) - Hundreds of people protested in a remote village in eastern India after police arrived to arrest a three-month-old boy for robbery, police and witnesses said on Friday.Oh you really think so? Did you or the police department investigate those you were arresting in even the slightest way? Apparently not, and for law enforcement incompetence you Sunit Kumar and the police department of Muzzafarpur India are today's knuckleheads of the day.
The infant's name was subsequently dropped from a list of people accused of robbing bus passengers last week, according to Sunit Kumar, senior police officer in the town of Muzzafarpur in the poor and lawless state of Bihar.
"We will conduct an investigation to find out how this happened in the first place," Kumar told Reuters by telephone.
Villagers were angered when a police team arrived with a list of accused, including the boy.
"How could our little Praveen be named an accused?" said Shakila Devi, the child's mother.
Kumar said the boy may have been named by the complainant "with a malicious intent".
