Thanks to hawkeye* reader Allen for letting me know about this story:
The Indian government, not unexpectedly, has decided to arrest the teenage surgeon and his parents on multiple, assorted charges. (I’m wondering where the “concealing evidence” charge comes in, seeing as they made a videotape of the operation for all the world to see.)
While the cops managed to nab the parents, the aspiring surgeon was apparently too quick and wily. If the kid’s smart, he’ll go to northeast India to start his own coin-melting operation. And he’ll videotape it so he can get into the Guiness Book of World Records as the youngest person to head up a coin-melting ring.
