Canned Treason

India is investigating reports than an army brigadier sold the country's battle plan in its 1965 war with Pakistan to help fund his wife's hobby of canning fruits and vegetables.

According to Reuters, Gohar Ayub Khan, the son of a former Pakistani president, says Pakistani agents purchased the plans for a whopping 20,000 rupees -- $458 -- money that helped the Indian officer buy canning equipment.
Reuters goes on:

"Gohar, a former Pakistan foreign minister whose autobiography will be released in coming weeks, told the Pakistani newspaper that the Indian brigadier was still alive and served in a very senior position before retiring.
The Indian defense ministry said though it doubted Gohar's claims it would investigate."
