Life imitating art

Every so often a sketch by the great Liverpudlian comedian Robb Wilton is repeated on the radio. After "The Day War Broke Out", the most popular are his turns as a bureaucratic fire chief and an incompetent police sergeant, who turns away a woman confessing to murder.

Now, courtesy of the India Uncut blog, comes this story from the Times of India. In true Robb Wilton fashion, an Indian desk sergeant refused to book a self-confessed murderer because the crime did not occur in his district.
