A barbaric incident has come into light, where a man allegedly raped a female stray dog in Navi Mumbai’s Kharghar area on August 21.

 

Police registered an FIR in the case after animal rights activist Vijay Rangare and PETA India lodged complaint under section 377 of the IPC. Vijay also tracked down the dog and took her for a medical examination. 
 
Vijay Rangare, an operations manager and Kamothe resident, was one of the many people who saw a video of a young man abusing a dog and thrusting his genitals into her mouth. The video had gone viral on social media on Independence Day. 
 
Vijay and his friends later tracked down the 22-year-old accused, Munna Kumar, who lives in Kharghar and works as a waiter, reported DNA India. 
 
 
According to reports, PETA India asked the police not to release the accused as he is believed to have sexually abused animals many times before too.
 
PETA India in a statement said, “We worked with the commissioner of police, Navi Mumbai; the deputy commissioner of police, Zone II, Panvel; and the Kharghar police station’s senior police inspector to help register the FIR under Section 377 of the IPC.”
 
A person who is convicted under section 377 of the IPC for raping an animal can be imprisoned for 10 years. PETA India has also sent a letter to the Central government urging it to amend the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (PCA) Act, 1960 to include bestiality as a offence and to include stronger penalties.

When time never waits you should ask why you are waiting for the right time. If time never waits then there is no wrong time to begin doing right things.
