Pictures of a goat behind bars have gone viral, days after a parrot was summoned by Maharashtra police for “hurling obscenities” at a woman.
The goat was reportedly locked up after a complaint was registered by its owner for cattle theft at Pathri in Parbhani district.
The goat was stolen on Saturday, allegedly by three people, one of whom was nabbed by the police yesterday and put in the Pathri lock-up.
However, the police also locked up the goat along with the alleged thief Naseem Khan. It was only after the photos went viral on WhatsApp and the social media, the goat was released from the lock-up but put under police watch.
A police official at Pathri said that the goat was in the lock-up for only 22 minutes and will be handed over to owner Hidayat Khan only after court’s verdict.
The incident comes days after police had summoned the parrot in Chandrapur district for “abusing” a woman.
