Submitted by Subeditor on Tue, 2016-02-09 18:50 Korea (Chhattisgarh): The goat, who was arrested for grazing in a judge's house in Chhattisgarh's Korea district, has been released on bail after Chief Minister Raman Singh's intervention. However, the owner of the goat, Abdul Hasan, has been arrested under CrPC Sections 151 and 107. Raman Singh had earlier said that he didn't have much information about the incident and assured that action would be taken. The goat, named Babli, was booked under charges which carry a two to seven year prison term and a fine. The police had arrested the goat and its owner, around 350 km from state capital Raipur. The police said that the goat had committed this offence repeatedly. "The judge's bungalow has an iron gate and the goat used to jump over it and enter," said Assistant Sub-Inspector R. Srivastava. "The peon, who maintains the garden, had warned the owner of the goat many times. So, today he filed a complaint and we arrested the goat and its owner. A case has been registered under Sections 447 and 427," he added. Recalling the series of events, the owner of the goat said that his animal was taken to the police station after she entered the premises of the judge's house. "She had grazed flowers and vegetables from the garden. They brought me to the police station today and told me to take the goat," Hasan told. (ANI)
