In a blood-curdling incident reported from West Bengal, a 60-year-old man from South 24 Parganas was arrested for raping his pet dog for over 2 years, with locals already knowing about the abuse. The matter came to the fore after the accused was caught on a video which was released on social media, prompting the authorities to take to the local police to call for his arrest.
The accused in the matter has been identified as Ratikant Sardar, who was captured on video by his neighbors who filmed the horrifying act. According to the locals, Sardar had been indulging in this despicable act for nearly two years at his home in the Chouhati Payarabagan area of Sonarpur police station. Despite repeated requests by his neighbors to release the dog, Sardar continued to rape his pet and even lured female stray dogs from the street for his sickening pleasure.
The video, which was shot nearly a year ago, was brought to the attention of an animal welfare body, who promptly filed a written complaint against Sardar under Section 377 and 11 of the Animal Cruelty Act. The complaint led to an FIR being registered against the accused, who was later arrested and will be produced in court today.
This is the third such incident of a dog being raped in India in last three months.
