An Indian man has been arrested for killing a female dog and having sex with it, local reports have stated. Aslam Khan was spotted by neighbours having unnatural sex with the dog in the south Indian state of Telangana.

The incident came to light after Mohammed Jahangir, a resident of the area in Hyderabad, asked his children to inquire about the abnormal noise of the dog. The residents caught the 22-year-old man having sexual intercourse with the dead canine. Khan has been arrested under sections 429 (mischief by killing or maiming an animal) and 377 (unnatural offence) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

Local police officer J Nagachary told Times of India: "Aslam Khan, a resident of Delhi, confessed that he and another man had throttled the dog before performing the sexual act. We have sent the carcass of the pregnant canine to the government veterinary hospital at Rajendranagar for post mortem."

"Aslam claimed that the other man killed the dog and had sex before him," he added.

Animal Rights Activist NG Jayasimha said: "These incidents expose the violent nature of human beings and it's high time we arrest such actions. Such perpetrators must be brought to book so we can set precedence for future wrong doers."
