FUJAIRAH — A Bangladeshi labourer allegedly turned into a wild beast after dashing into a cattle pen and sexually assaulting a cow. He was detained and referred to the court, which sentenced him to six months in jail to be followed by deportation.

Court records showed that a national heard abnormal sounds coming out of his cattle pen. When opening the door and checking, he found a Bangladeshi labourer, identified as M.Z., sexually assaulting a cow. He took hold of him and called the police. The man, who was arrested, admitted to his crime, while the cow was sent for medical examination. The accused was arraigned to the prosecution, which charged him with committing an abnormal and unnatural act, trespassing on the national’s pen without permission. Although the medical examination of the cow does not assert the sexual assault, the labourer was referred to the Court of First Instance, which exonerated him for lack of evidence.

The prosecution, however, contested the verdict with the Court of Appeal, spotlighting that the labourer had confessed to his crime. Besides, both the pen owner and another witness testified that they saw the labourer without pants. Accordingly, the court sentenced the convict to six months in prison, to be followed by deportation after the completion of the jail term.
