Police Invoke the gods

In the South Indian city of Vellore, police have tried another method to help solve a recent spurt in theft crimes. A local Hindu priest was invited to the police station to perform a pooja (religious ceremony) for warding off the "evil eye" from the station. Pumpkins were also smashed by the police a couple of days ago to ward off the evil spirits that they believe are preventing the crime fighters from success.
As an additional measure, extra patrols were added in the area.
