A suspect who faked fainting to avoid questioning by police gave himself up after smelling curry beef rice eaten by a policeman watching over him.
The man was arrested on suspicion of fraud on July 17 but pretended to faint to avoid questioning.
Doctors tried various methods to wake him but to no avail until the third day when he was awakened by the smell of curry beef rice at his bedside.
He told police the food smelled nice, which the policeman agreed.
“The rice smell was very strong and spread all over the room as I was eating it,” said the officer.
The suspect who couldn’t resist it, got up and told police that he decided to pretend to have suffered trauma and fake fainting to avoid being investigated.
Finally, he admitted that it was the food that finally made him give up.
“I haven’t eaten for three days. My empty stomach couldn’t bear it anymore when I smelled food around me.”
