Eight donkeys 'jailed' in India for eating plants worth Rs 50000

039;Arrested' donkeys

The UP police department, targeted for failing to control crime graph in the northern state, has now given us enough evidence as of why its actions are in the line of fire often.

The donkeys had to spend four days behind the bars for their offence.

The "detention" took place four days ago on the orders of the Jail Superintendent, Orai District Jail Sita Ram.

The authorities said the donkeys belonging to Kamlesh, a local, on November 24 had devoured costly saplings and other crops.

He said: 'There is no such law wherein we can arrest donkeys.

In a freakish criminal case, about half a dozen donkeys were "arrested" by the security guards of Orai District jail in Uttar Pradesh for grazing exotic plants under Swachch Bharat Mission outside jail complex. "So we detained the donkeys", head constable RK Mishra told ANI.

They had reportedly munched their way through 500,000 Indian ruppees (around £5,800) worth of plants left outside.

Sharma also said the animals were well known as mischief-makers in the area, the Times of India reports. "We called the owners several times, and each time, they said the animals didn't belong to them". And eventually the donkeys ended up in jail.

Kamlesh, then, approached police with his request to let the animals go free but the officials refused to release the donkeys for four days. When I came to know that they are in jail, I sought the help from local Bharatiya Janata Party leaders. On Monday, when Gahoi asked the policemen to release the donkeys, the animals ultimately got their "freedom".
