An errant goat was detained for grazing in a judge's house in the Korea district of Chhattisgarh, central India. The incident followed earlier warnings given to the goat's owner.
Along with the owner, the animal has been booked under charges which carry a two to seven year prison term and a fine.
The police arrested the goat and its owner Abdul Hasan, around 350 km from state capital Raipur.
The police said that the goat had committed this offence repeatedly.
"The judge's bungalow has an iron gate and the goat used to jump over it and enter," said Assistant Sub-Inspector R. Srivastava.
"The peon, who maintains the garden, had warned the owner of the goat many times. So, today he filed a complaint and we arrested the goat and its owner.
"A case has been registered under Sections 447 and 427," he added.
Recalling the series of events, the owner of the goat said that his animal was taken to the police station after she entered the premises of the judge's house.
"She had grazed flowers and vegetables from the garden. They brought me to the police station today and told me to take the goat," Hasan said.
