When Steve Jobs, the legendary co-founder of Apple, and his team invented the legendary iPhone, few could have imagined that it would just be in the pocket of the world. An iPhone has evolved into more than just a status symbol, it has become a must-have around the world. Even in India, thousands of kilometers away from the birthplace of the mobile phone. But a local government official did the unthinkable when he dropped his iPhone into a reservoir: he drained it for four days before he found the phone! The officer was suspended for his crime.

Rajesh Vishwas, a food inspector, was enjoying an outing with his friends when he accidentally dropped his Apple iPhone worth 1.5 lakh rupees in the Paralkot reservoir in Kanker district, Chhattisgarh state. The group frantically searched for the phone in the water, but to no avail.

Then, in an act of vain complacency, Vishwas installed pumps to drain the reservoir. About 4 million liters of water were pumped out, according to a report in part of the Indian media. The operation lasted four days, and lo and behold, he found the device at the bottom of the reservoir.

Apparently, his superiors were furious when they learned of his unscrupulous act. A senior district administration official told the Indo-Asian News Service: “Rajesh Vishwas has been suspended.”
