8 men arrested in India for raping pregnant goat to death

Eight men who reside around a village in Haryana’s Mewat district of India may soon be cooling their heels in police net when the law catches up with them.

They are alleged to have gang-raped a pregnant goat to death.

According to local police officials, the suspects who raped the seven-year-old pregnant goat which died a day after the assault are locals and alleged history-sheeters.

Reports say three of the men were beaten up by villagers in Maroda village about 73 kilometres south of Gurugram after the owner of the goat caught them in the act.

Police have registered a case under Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code, which prohibits “carnal intercourse against the order of nature with man, woman or animal” and under the Animal Cruelty Act at Nagina police station in Nuh, earlier known as Mewat. The police are yet to make any arrests but say that the accused would be nabbed soon.

“Our team is investigating the case and has recorded the statement of the goat’s owner, who allegedly caught the three accused in the act. We are also in the process of recording the statements of other eyewitnesses and villagers to know the exact sequence of the crime and arrests will be made once we get all the details,” Nazneen Bhasin, superintendent of police, Nuh, said Sunday morning. Five others are yet to be identified.
