DRDO lab makes chilli spray for self-defence

New Delhi : A defence research laboratory has developed an eco-friendly spray from the world''s hottest chilli for personal protection and self-defence, Defence Minister A.K. Antony told Rajya Sabha Wednesday.

The spray has been extracted from the Bhut Jolokia (Capsicum Assamicum), grown in Assam and other northeastern states.

Antony said the Defence Research Laboratory (DRL) in Tezpur, a laboratory of the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), developed the chilli spray, dubbed "capsispray".

"It is an eco-friendly non-lethal chilli spray for personal protection and self- defence. It contains Oleoresin Capsicum extracted from the world''s hottest chilli, the Bhut Jolokia," Antony said.

He said the prototype of the chilli spray was ready and the product required to be tested for toxicology parameters.

"DRDO will take further steps to popularise the product once trials are over," he said.
