Days after a major breakthrough was achieved in the Jisha rape and murder case with the arrest of Assamese migrant worker Ameerul Islam, the Kerala police have booked him for bestiality as well.
This came after the police claimed that there was video evidence against him which they had procured from another migrant worker.
According to the Times of India, an informant had sent them a video of Islam having sex with a goat which was recorded by another migrant worker.
TOI further reports that the goat was owned by an individual close to where Ameerul was staying at Perumbavoor. Ameerul's face was not clear in the video, however, but eyewitnesses pointed to him.
The goat was taken to a veterinary hospital in Thrissur later. ‚ÄúThe genital organs of the female goat were injured. When questioned, Ameerul said he tried to injure the goat using a stone. But it looks like he used a sharp object, may be a knife,‚ÄĚ a police officer told TOI.
Keeping in mind the similarity to what was done to Jisha, the police launched a manhunt for him.
The police had submitted an FIR on June 21 before a court, leveling charges of bestiality against Ameerul. A case had been registered under Section 377 of the IPC (unnatural sex).
Meanwhile, this also raises questions as to whether the accused was mentally ill which led him to commit such gory sexual acts.
