The Western Indian state of Rajasthan saw a bizarre crime where two men allegedly raped a cow and filmed the act. Reported first by Danik Bhaskar newspaper, the incident took place in the Chuhadpur locality of the Bhiwadi region in the Alwar district. Police arrested two men after a video of at least four people involved in unnatural sex with a cow went viral.
According to a police complaint filed against four Chuhadpur residents, Waris, Zubair, Chuna, and Taleem, the incident occurred in the Alwar district's Choupanki police station area on February 10. While Zubair, 21, and Chuna were arrested, police are still on the lookout for the other two.
According to reports, the accused allegedly took the cow to a nearby mountainous slope. While three of them got involved in unnatural sex with the cow, the fourth one filmed the act. The accused are said to have smashed the cow's mouth before the rape, in order to stop it from making any noise.

"We registered a complaint and started the investigation. We have apprehended two of the culprits as of now and we are sure we will catch the other two very soon," he said.
