In a similar incident in May 2019, a man from Ayodhya has been arrested for raping several cows at a cattle shelter in the city. The accused has been identified as Rajkumar, who hails from Nawabganj's Gonda. He frequently visited Kartaliya Baba Ashram where he was caught red-handed.
The incident came to the fore after volunteers who help with daily chores of the Kartaliya Baba Ashram discovered CCTV camera footage of a man raping several cows. From then onwards, the volunteers kept a close watch on the shelter.
Jogendra Kumar said that Rajkumar was arrested and booked under sections 376 and 511 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), for cruelty against animals.
