Mumbai, Sep 25: In a shocking incident, a 26-year-old Mumbai taxi driver has been charged with having sexual intercourse with a dog, Times News Network report said.
Mahesh Kamat, a Mumbai taxi-driver asked sessions court that he should be given bail because the police was not in a position to record the victim's statement.
He was arrested from Tardeo on Aug 30 and booked under section 377 of the IPC.
Report said that the case deals with offences relating to 'unnatural sex' and with Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (PCA) Act.
Kamat pleaded that the PCA was not applicable to him as the dog he was charged of having intercourse with was a 'stray' and not a 'pet dog'.
However, the court said that there was enough evidence against him. It also said that Kamat's alleged offence had disturbed the residents of the area and the act amounted to cruelty to an animal.
Police have also collected DNA and forensic evidence in a bid to nail him in court, the report said.
