one that meets the blog's high standards, nonetheless.//
Three policemen guarding the plantation home of
Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif have been
relieved of duty after a cat attacked and ate the
PM's peacock. According to a report in the Express
Tribüne newspaper, the remains of the peacock
were found on Tuesday by a gardener.
Nothing else to worry about?
One of the policemen told the paper that 21 security
personnel were summoned to give statements on
Wednesday. In their statements, the policemen
confirmed that they were on duty on the night in
question but did not consider the possibility that
a cat would attack the peacock.
The 18 policemen who did not have responsibility
for the garden lawns returned to duty but three
others were charged with neglect. Sharif's plantation
home is located in Raiwind, near Lahore.
