UP police picked up the goat and took it to the police station in a jeep
The police changed its version after it became the butt of jokes on social media
Days before Eid, the Police in Kanpur has arrested a goat for “roaming in the Beconganj area without wearing a mask”.
The incident took place over the weekend and the Beconganj police picked up the goat and took it to the police station in a jeep. When the owner of the goat learnt that the police had taken it away, he rushed to the police station.
He pleaded with the cops and the police finally let him take back his goat but warned him not to allow the animal to roam on the road.
The police apparently changed its version after it became the butt of jokes on social media.
Circle officer, Anwarganj police station, Saifuddin Beg, told News18 that the police had found a young man without a mask, taking the goat along.
“When he saw the police, he ran away leaving the goat behind so the policemen brought the goat to the police station. Later, we handed over the goat to its owner,” he said.
However, another policemen who had brought the goat admitted that they found a lockdown violation because the goat was without a mask.
“People are now making their dogs wear a mask so why not a goat?” he asked.
