Humans can’t get any worse than this! One of the most cruel incidents came into light, where a man allegedly raped a female stray dog in Navi Mumbai’s Kharghar area on August 21.
Police lodged an FIR in the case following animal rights activist Vijay Rangare and PETA India filed a complaint under section 377 of the IPC.
Thanks to Vijay who tracked down the dog and then took her for a medical examination.
Vijay Rangare who works as an operations manager and resident of Kamothe was one of the many people who watched a video of a young man abusing a stray dog and forcefully pushing his genitals into her mouth. Moments after the video was uploaded on social media, it spread like wildfire on Independence Day.
Vijay and his friends later managed to track down the 22-year-old accused, Munna Kumar, who lives in Kharghar. The accused works as a waiter as reported by DNA India.
As per the reports, PETA India asked the police not to release the wrongdoer as he is known to have sexually abused animals many times earlier too.
PETA India in a recent statement said, “We worked with the commissioner of police, Navi Mumbai; the deputy commissioner of police, Zone II, Panvel; and the Kharghar police station’s senior police inspector to help register the FIR under Section 377 of the IPC.”
“A female dog was RAPED in Kharghar. ?? Navi Mumbai Police filed an FIR after PETA India and an animal activist registered complaints, and the accused has been arrested and charged under Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code,” PETA India tweeted.
It should be learnt that a person who is convicted under section 377 of the IPC for raping an animal can be imprisoned for 10 years.
PETA India has also sent a letter to the Central government suggesting it to amend the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (PCA) Act, 1960 to include bestiality as a big offence and to include stringent penalties.
