India's cash for criminals programme...
The government in India's most lawless state, Bihar, has come up with a new approach to crime. It is paying criminals to surrender and give up their weapons.
Now a desperate state government is offering 10,000 rupees ($222) to every criminal to turn themselves in.
It is also offering a monthly 'income' of 3,000 rupees ($66) to every criminal who surrenders
So far 191 criminals have already surrendered for cash in the districts of Supaul and Madhepura in the presence of Bihar's new chief minister, Nitish Kumar.
Woah, this is amazing :)! Read details here
