Prank with compressor machine claims worker's life, two colleagues arrested
Thane police in Maharashtra on Thursday arrested two men for allegedly pumping air into a colleague's rectum by way of a prank which caused his death, an official said.
On November 26, the accused allegedly inserted the nozzle of a compressor in the rectum of the victim and switched on the machine, he said.
As a result high-pressure air entered his abdomen and he collapsed, the official said.
The victim died at a hospital on Wednesday, following which the police arrested the two accused. They were produced before a local magistrate who remanded them in police custody for two days.
A case under IPC section 304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder) has been registered at Nizampura police station.
