Bizarre! China police shares wanted criminal’s childhood photo to trace him; gets trolled


Beijing, March 21: Sometimes, even the law-keepers come up with bizarre staff.

The notice issued from the county police warned that one Ji Qinghai is wanted for violent offences and gang crimes but the photograph they attached with the message was that of cute kid with chubby cheeks, saying that was all they had about the criminal. The police believed Ji could still be caught because his current facial features still resemble those of the kid.

But the police department came under widespread mockery for the act and it apologised later and removed the photo, saving thereby some innocent kid from an unwanted detention.
