Depression: Indian Cop Drinks Blood to Stave Off Depression

You do realize, of course, that a Pakistan news magazine should probably not be trusted when reporting on well loved neighbor India. That's why I don't feel bad sharing this ghoulish tale below. It is perfect for Halloween and is possibly not true.

Unhappy with his low paying job and duties,
a police assistant in India’s central state of Chhattisgarh killed a fellow villager by slitting his throat with a sword and drank his blood, hoping to cure his own depression, police said on Monday.

Apparently, Amit Soni, the 28 year old Indian guard, saw this bloody remedy as a cure for his career dead end doldrums. Now he is well-balanced and behind bars. Makes me wonder what the Indians report about the Pakistanis.
