In a similar incident in April this year, a man allegedly raped a cow in Uttar Pradesh’s capital Lucknow. The accused Majid was later arrested by the police from Daroga Khera in Sarojni Nagar area. Though the incident took place on April 23, the matter came to light after the accused’s neighbour was going through the CCTV footage near the crime spot.
