Bang! Now you are burning.
India’s security forces are planning to mix one of the world’s hottest chilli powders in hand grenades to control riots and battle insurgents.
Defence scientists said they will replace explosives in small grenades with a certain variety of red chilli to immobilise a person without killing him.
“We are working on a project on how to use the hottest chilli in different applications in defence forces,” said RB Srivastava, a scientist at the state-run Defence Research and Development Organisation.
