    Army Uses Hottest Chilli As A Weapon


    The thumb-sized "bhut jolokia", which is usually used to cure stomach troubles, will be employed to pepper suspects with the tear gas-like grenades.
    Researchers have trialled the flaming hot chilli and found a way to harness the power of a vegetable which is more than 125,000-times spicier than a jalapeno.
    Troops will now use the bhut jolokia - also known as "ghost chilli" - to smoke out insurgents.
    The chilli-powered grenades were declared "fit for use" by defence officials after trials at the country's Defence Research and Development Organisation.
    "This is definitely going to be an effective nontoxic weapon because its pungent smell can choke terrorists and force them out of their hide-outs," said RB Srivastava, the director in charge of the research.
    Trials are also on to produce bhut jolokia-based aerosol sprays to be used by women against attackers and for the police to control and disperse mobs.
    The bhut jolokia, which is grown and eaten in India's northeast for its taste, was crowned the world's hottest chilli by Guinness World Records in 2007.
    The judges measured more than 1,000,000 Scoville units, the scientific measurement of a chilli's spiciness.
    Classic Tabasco sauce ranges from 2,500 to 5,000 Scoville units, while jalapeno peppers measure anywhere from 2,500 to 8,000.
