A goat arrested yesterday for raiding a senior bureaucrat's garden in Chhattisgarh was granted a bail today. Along with its owner, it has been booked under charges that carry a two to seven year prison term and a fine.
… Among the goat's criminal activities the police have listed grazing in the garden and eating plants and vegetables. They said the magistrate had called up senior police officers to complain about the errant animal.
Abdul Hassan, who faces charges of criminal trespass and mischief causing damage along with his goat, is now awaiting the court's decision this afternoon.
