Indian man arrested for raping dead dog
A 22-year-old man in Hyderabad, India, has been arrested for sexually abusing a dead dog.
On Monday, NDTV reported that locals from the area captured Aslam Khan, a native of Delhi, after he was caught naked and having “unnatural sex” with a canine he earlier killed.
Mohammed Jahangir, a resident of Shastripuran area, had asked his children to check what happened after they heard violent screams outside their home. When they arrived outside, they were petrified to see the slaughtered dog with Khan. The suspect tried to escape, but residents captured him and handed him to the police.
The dog was a stray and was fed by different families living in the area.
Police said that Khan, who was in the southern Indian capital to hang out with friends and work as a laborer, did not seem “mentally disturbed” when he committed the gruesome act.
The police were investigating whether Khan strangled the dog during sexual intercourse. The canine’s body was undergoing a post-mortem examination.
Earlier, three months ago, the same act of cruelty to man’s best friend happened in India when two aspiring medical students from Chennai hurled a dog from a building and filmed it. After the video went viral, the pooch was rescued and is now sheltered by animal-rights activists. Gianna Francesca Catolico
