Female Gang Members Strip to Distract Police From Arresting Other Gang Members

Female members of a "timber gang" in India have resorted to stripping naked when the police pursue male members of the gang who illegally chop down trees in India's forests.  Officials say the tactic is working:  “It is proving tough to deal with these women,” Jharkhand forest official B.K. Singh said. “It has almost become a regular practice for them to strip.”  Story from MSNBC.com . . .

Also in India, a crime reporter has been arrested for using information gained through his reporting job to go on a crime spree.  Story from MSNBC.com . . .  [Mark Godsey]
