A 18-year-old man accused of having sexual union with calf admitted in All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) by his parents for treatment of his behaviour.
The accused of bestiality comes from the dairy farm area in Najafgarh area of South West Delhi.
According to the doctors this is not the first case brought to the hospital. In last two years AIIMS has received two such cases of bestiality. In a similar case case a person a man who had sex with two calves was admitted to the hospital for treatment.
Bestiality is a punishable Delinquency as per Indian legal system (Section 377 of the IPC).
“He had committed sexual intercourse with two calves and one calf died during the act. Human DNA was detected from the anal and vaginal swabs of calves in a forensic science laboratory which confirmed the allegation.
The patient had not shown any feeling of guilt or remorse associated with the death of a calf and admitted to the heterosexual practice,” Dr Sujata Satapathy, who is handling such cases at Department of Psychiatry.
“We are concerned because a person who had engaged in childhood bestiality is more likely to commit adult interpersonal crimes and this should be taken as a warning sign by society,” she said.
Sexual abuse during childhood and exposure to various online pornography websites involving bestiality could have strongly affected his psycho-socio-sexual and personality development.
Repeated sexual abuse in a prepubertal stage could have been the culprit for the patient’s internalised aggressive behaviour, which in turn might have resulted in the patient adopting a displacement defence mechanism by displacing his internal anger towards animals.
This could have resulted in the forceful sexual imposition and committing injuries to the calves to such an extent,” Dr. Satapathy said.
