Have you gotten over the death of the pregnant goat who had succumbed to internal hemorrhage after being gangraped by 8 men? And do you remember the horror of Nirbhaya verdict wherein the victim Jyoti Singh was butchered by her rapists in a running bus by forcing iron rods inside her intestines? Well, here is one more terrifying news waiting for you and this time a helpless female dog has replaced ‘nirbhaya’.
Premshankar Rai, a security guard from Mumbai raped the female dog named Bindu and mercilessly killed her by inserting a sharp object in her vagina. He was immediately arrested by Samta Nagar Police Station in Mumbai’s Kandivali area following an FIR by Mumbai Animal Association (MAA) but is now roaming on a bail that cost him RS 3000. Bindu had given birth to 7 puppies around a month back and they still need her for being nursed.
For now, the pups have been taken into custody by MAA and after hearing of the incidence People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India has urged Mumbai Police Commissioner to re-arrest the culprit and convict him as per section 377, IPC. PETA says that a rapist is in anyway a rapist, no matter whom he has raped. If set free, the man may victimize a human woman tomorrow.
We can’t agree more with PETA and wonder why in the name of God was PCA framed? The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act is an Act of the Parliament of India enacted in 1960 to prevent the infliction of unnecessary pain or suffering on animals and to amend the laws relating to the prevention of cruelty to animals. What’s the use of this law if it can’t imprison the rapist and murderer of an innocent mother?
The one who was raped was a female, a mother, a voiceless, an innocent and above all, a living being having every right to live like you and us. Nothing can allow you to rape any living being. Neither your being a human nor them being animals. If you do so, you can no more be called human but a monster and must meet your fate.
