The incident happened in Jandutta area of Bilaspur district of Himachal Pradesh on May 26.

It went off in its mouth when chewed," said a police official.

    No Compassion? One can continue to do evil in this world that's now adrift. Almighty God will demand an account of all this cruelty and contempt for all his creation.
