Red Hot Chilli Pepper Grenades!


Red Hot

Chilli Pepper

Indian scientists are to put

one of the world’s hottestĀ chilli

powders into hand grenades.

They say the devices will be

used to control rioters and in

counter-insurgency operations.


Defence researchers say the

idea is to replace explosives

in small hand grenades with

a certain variety of red chilli

to immobilise people without

killing them,

reports the BBC.

The chilli,

known as Bhut Jolokia,

is said to be 1,000 times

hotterĀ than commonly

used kitchen chilli.


Scientists at India’s Defence

Research and Development

Organisation (DRDO) are

quoted as saying the potent

chilli will be used as a food

additive for troops operating

in cold conditions.

And the powder will also be

spread on the fences around

army barracks in the hope

the strong smell will keep

out animals.
