The police say they will take a legal action only after the postmortem report of the goat comes in.
The goat, which was accused of being a 'repeat offender', was killed with bow and arrow after it allegedly ventured into the field of a farmer in Boridand area of Manendragarh village and destroyed his crops.
The goat's death led to a heated argument between its owner and the accused farmer and his wife. They accused the owner of attacking them and filed a complaint against him at the Manendragarh police station.
Following this, the owner and his goat were called to the police station, where a case was registered and the carcass was sent for an autopsy.
It may be recalled that a goat was taken into custody by police in Chhattisgarh's Koriya district on a trespass complaint in 2016. The goat was released later, but its owner was not lucky as he was sent to a two-day remand. (ANI)
