Shockingly, this isn't an isolated incident. In May, one Rajkumar was caught by volunteers of an animal shelter in Ayodhya, UP, after CCTV footage showed the accused rape several cows. The volunteers caught the accused in the act when he had returned to the shelter to attempt rape again. The man was arrested and booked under sections 376 and 511 of the Indian Penal Code for cruelty against animals.

In March, there were two incidents - one in Madhya Pradesh and another one in Hyderabad. The video of the MP man's unspeakable act was caught on camera and widely circulated, drawing huge criticism. The accused was arrested. Similarly, a 30-year-old was arrested for raping a calf in Hyderabad. Such acts of brutality against animals has not only shocked the nation, but also drawn ire of people.
