In India, a government official has been fired after ordering him to dump water into a dam’s reservoir to retrieve his phone.
Officer Rajesh Biswas’s phone fell while taking a selfie; Then, on his orders, millions of liters of water were dumped in the reservoir in three days.
But by the time the phone was found, it was so waterlogged that it could no longer be operated.
Rajesh claimed that it was necessary to retrieve the phone because it contained sensitive government information, but he was suspended for abuse of power and investigated, the BBC reported.
On Sunday, the Samsung phone worth Rs 1 lakh fell from the hands of food inspector Rajesh in the reservoir of Kherkatta dam in Chhattisgarh.
