This is so absurd it must surely be a joke?

I know I'm not BU but seriously, someone else really needs to be told they are.

I do not know what to say. After reading it three times, I do not know what to say. Except yanbu that someone else is.......

I am not inclined to defend the numpties who have managed this.

But I assume, when taking names his was given as one of them and someone hasn't really checked/thought it through.

The murder charges against a baby have alarmed Punjab's Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif. He has asked for clarification from the province's inspector-general of police and demanded "stern action" against the officials who registered the case.

Someone is in for a bollocking.

I agree with Morloth

Looks like they already got a bollocking:

The assistant superintendant who filed the charges has subsequently been suspended

He looks guilty to me...

Why did they give him bail though? They could see he's a baby, why not just stop it there?

Bizarre.

Although the bloke next to the Dad is probably laughing along with the court officials at how ridiculous a situation it was.

He's very cute though isn't he? smile

The age of criminal responsibility in India is 7 sad

It wasn't an April fool by any chance?

This made me feel ill when I first saw the story. If someone was bonkers enough to charge him, I hope to God no one is bonkers enough to convict him.

That's what I thought, how has it even got as far as him being given bail? Why didn't they drop the charged when they realised he was a baby?

Hope it's an April fool.

I read this in another paper yesterday! The whole family was charged. Police came to arrest a family member and there were reports the baby threw stones at officers grin
