A man in Telangana’s Nizamabad district got arrested after allegedly sexually assaulting a calf for a year. Sub-Inspector B Venkateshwarlu from the Navipet police station said that the incident took place on Friday night when some locals spotted the accused roaming near a farmer’s house, where the cow tied.
The accused claimed he was there to collect cow dung. They have registered a case under Section 377. They arrested him after villagers suspected that he was engaging in intercourse with the cows. The accused has identified as Laxman and caught by locals in his village on Friday.
The cow in question has taken to a veterinary hospital and conducted medical tests to determine sexual assault by the local veterinary officer. “They sent the cow for a medical test as per due process. The results will be out in two or three months. Meanwhile, as soon as the courts reopen on Monday, we will send the accused to judicial remand,” the SI said.
Similar incidents against dogs have also reported in various parts of Telangana. The police said that they would also consider adding sections of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960, after legal advice.
