This is coolbert:
That word "Chilly" in American English meaning somewhat cold to the bare flesh. "Chili" in American English that food a mix of beef, beans, tomato and hot chili sauce or powder.
The Indian Army during counter-terrorism operations using "chili" grenades as an adjunct to conventional tear gas.
"Army used ‘chilly grenades’ to flush out Pak terrorist Sajjad Ahmed from a cave"
"The 22-year-old [Sajjid] was one of the five terrorists who had crossed over from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) and hid in the cave after army detected the infiltration and was hunting for them in Rafiabad area of Kashmir."
"He [Sajjid] panicked and begged for mercy after army commandos fired ‘chilly grenades’ and teargas shells into a cave to flush out the terrorists who were holed up there since last night."
. . . .
"After sometime, troops entered the cave and found Sajjad weeping bitterly — one because of panic and secondly because of the effect of chilly grenades."
Regarding the "chili" grenade some further clarification.
Info on the Chili grenade:
"GAUHATI, India – The Indian military has a new weapon against terrorism: the world's hottest chili. After conducting tests, the military has decided to use the thumb-sized 'bhut jolokia' . . . to make tear gas-like hand grenades to immobilize suspects . . . It has more than 1,000,000 Scoville units, the [un]scientific measurement of a chili's spiciness. Classic Tabasco sauce ranges from 2,500 to 5,000 Scoville units, while jalapeno peppers measure anywhere from 2,500 to 8,000 [Scoville units]."
It hurts and it is supposed to hurt. Just ask Sajjad!!
