RK Mishra—Head Constable told ANI—a news agency that the owner of the donkeys was forbidden to let lose his animals prior as a senior officer had organized some very costly plants to be planted inside the jail premises. Despite the warnings, the owner did not put any effort in restricting his animals, so these donkeys were punished and were put behind bars.
A local politician bailed the convicts out by submitting a suitable bail amount to the authorities.
The owner was present to collect his herd at the time when these donkeys were relieved of their punishment and were released from the jail.
Later the owner mentioned that I went there to collect my donkeys. They were eight and were detained for four days in jail.
