Outliers: What caliber?
The company said in a statement March 16 that the “shell was inadvertently left in an item of his clothing.” Starks is no longer in police custody, according to the company. He was not carrying a gun. “Mr. Starks is respectful of the local process and has decided to remain in India until this misunderstanding is completely cleared up,” a company spokeswoman says. The spokeswoman could not confirm where Starks was detained.
