In a horrifying incident in Haryana’s Mewat district, a pregnant goat died after eight intoxicated men allegedly gang raped her.
The incident reportedly took place on the night of July 25 and a complaint has been registered against the accused. The goat’s owner registered a police complaint on July 26 after he found the goat missing.
Nagina police station in charge (SI) Rajbir Singh said, “One person, Aslu registered a complaint on July 26 that his goat was gang-raped on the night of July 25 by Savakar, Haroon, Jaffar and five others whose identities are yet to be ascertained. All the accused are currently absconding.”
