The tree under arrest for allegedly moving from its place in Khyber Rifles Mess at Landi Kotal #FATA Pakistan
A heavily drunk soldier had one good reason to put a tree under arrest in Pakistan. The event occurred in far back 1898, and funny enough, the accused tree is still under arrest even now. Crazy world, isn’t it?
Image shows the trespassing tree that was put under arrest by a British soldier.
The arresting officer was a Brit named James Squid. His “accused” was and is a tree in Khyber Rifles Officers Mess at Landi Kotal.
James allegedly saw the old banyan tree lurching towards him, and in a state of drunkenness, ordered a soldier to arrest it immediately. The tree remains on lock-down in the army cantonment until this day.
