Hyderabad: In what could be a shocking incident, a 22-year-old has been caught in south Hyderabad for allegedly raping a dog who was found dead.
The police is examining whether the man, identified as Aslam Khan, a native of Delhi, smothered the animal, or she died during the act.
The suspect told the police that he moved down from Delhi two days ago to serve as a daily wager. He was detected in some bushes on Monday morning by neighbors.
The dog was a stray who was served and attended after by different families in the colony.
The police stated that Aslam Khan does not seem mentally disturbed.
“These incidents expose the violent nature of human beings and it’s high time we arrest such actions. Such perpetrators must be brought to book so we can set precedence for future wrongdoers,” said Animal Rights Activist NG Jayasimha.
