Donkeys jailed for destroying 'expensive' plants, Twitter reacts

The UP police department, targeted for failing to control crime graph in the northern state, has now given us enough evidence as of why its actions are in the line of fire often.

In what can only be termed as an extremely freakish case of official high-handedness, the donkeys were accused of destroying the plants outside the jail despite their owners reportedly being repeatedly warned to not let the animals wander. The BJP leader accompanied Kamlesh to police station and secured release of the donkeys.

The animals were thought to be no worse off for their four days spent in detention.

Yes, the UP police on Tuesday tweeted stating that it "has nothing to do with their (donkeys) arrest or custody".

The donkeys had been detained at the Urai district jail complex for four days for eating expensive plants in the facility, the kind they would never have had a chance to be fed. "So we detained the donkeys", head constable RK Mishra told ANI. The plants apparently cost several lakhs.

The owner was there to receive his herd and the donkeys walked out of the jail.

In India, no person - or animal - can escape the law.

Kamlesh, then, approached police with his request to let the animals go free but the officials refused to release the donkeys for four days.

Their bail had been paid by a local politician from the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), according to NDTV. On Monday, when Gahoi asked the policemen to release the donkeys, the animals ultimately got their "freedom".
