Jaipur man booked for unnatural sex with female stray dog
A first information report (FIR) was registered against a man for allegedly having unnatural sex with a female stray dog in Jaipur, police said on Friday. The action comes after People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India and animal rights activist Sachin Stalin filed a complaint.
A Bhankrota police official said the case was lodged on August 20 against Kamal Hassan. He has been sent to judicial custody under section 151 of criminal procedure code.
A video of the act was not clear and the dog has not been located. Once the stray female dog is found, medical examination will be done and further action will be taken against the culprit, the official said.
PETA India worked with Deputy Commissioner of Police, Jaipur West and the Bhankrota Police Station’s Station House Officer to help get the FIR registered under Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code, 1860.
Section 377 of IPC states whoever voluntarily has carnal intercourse against the order of nature with any man, woman or animal shall be punished with imprisonment for life, or with imprisonment of either description for a term, which may extend to ten years ans shall also be liable to fine.
In a statement, PETA India warned if released, the man could go on to abuse a human in the same way.
“Violent people often start by abusing animals and then move on to targeting human victims. Therefore, this case should worry everyone,” said Meet Ashar of PETA India.
