The 25-yr-old man had earlier been chased down by the police, forcing him to swallow the evidence in a bid to conceal it.

After he had been caught by the police, the thief had denied snatching the chain from a woman on the streets of Mumbai, until an Xray had proved that he had ingested the chain.

The police are reported to have administered an enema to the thief in a bid to force him to excrete the chain, all to no avail.

Following the failure of the enema, doctors had reportedly suggested a surgery to be used in retrieving the chain.

After deciding that a surgery would be too expensive and time consuming, the police had opted to force feed the thief up to 40 bananas in a bid to make him stool the chain.

Speaking on the incident, a senior inspector with the Mumbai police, Shankar Dhanavade, said:

“He was fed more than 40 bananas throughout the day. Eventually the chain was found. We made him wash and disinfect it.”
