65-year old Man arrested for bestiality in Model Colony, Pune

Shivajinagar, 4 April 2021: A 65-year-old man was nabbed today for allegedly raping a female dog near Senapati Bapat Road in Model Colony. RESQ Charitable Trust team and its volunteers handed over the man to the Pune city police.

Pallavi Gowda, a resident near SB Road Pune, had been noticing a nearby building watchman who would pick up a dog and take it under his building every few days. 

“There is a scientifically proven correlation between animal abuse bestiality and community violence whether it is women or children. A growing body of research indicated that people who commit acts of bestiality towards animals rarely stop there”, said Neha Panchamia, Founder and President, RESQ Charitable Trust and Member, Pune District SPCA.

Chatushrungi police station has registered an FIR against the accused for offences under section 377 (unnatural offences) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and section 11 (treating animal cruelly) of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960.
