Can you believe this tree is under arrest?

What is this world coming to? Now back up, back up this train- A TREE IS UNDER ARREST?

Yup, you heard that right- there is no logic to this statement and human kind shouldn’t expect it either. But here’s the deets: A banyan tree in Pakistan is put in chains- its been arrested. Ridiculous!

The tree is located in the Landi Kotal army cantonment and is chained to prevent it from moving. It was put under arrest in 1898 when a British army officer, James Squid, under the influence of alcohol, thought that the tree was gonna kill him. The drunk dude then put the tree under arrest as a safety precaution.

Some believe there is a bigger story to this. It was done to scare the tribal people . THE POOR TREE is a sign of bad times and how people would have been treated if they went against the government.

SIGH. This world never ceases to amaze me.
