Police ‘protect’ stolen goats in Odisha’s Balasore district as owner yet to be ‘found’ | Bhubaneswar News – Times of India

Nilagiri police in Balasore district have a unique problem – they have two goats in their custody for the last three months. The goats were allegedly recovered from miscreants who were trying to steal them.
According to the police, five miscreants were returning to Balasore in an SUV after allegedly stealing a goat from Mayurbhanj on October 21, 2022. On the way near Dwarakasuni area, they attempted to snatch gold ornaments from a couple. Nilagiri police managed to catch three of the accused. However, locals took away four goats from their vehicle and after a tussle among them, they brought the four goats to the police station three months ago.
While the two she-goats were placed in the care of a nearby villager, the two black he-goats have been kept at the Nilagiri police station since then. However, police have not been able to determine who the goats belong to, and no charges have been filed.
In the meantime, the goats are being cared for by police officers in the Nilagiri police station.
During the day, the goats graze around the police station and at night, the officiers keep them locked in an unused police quarters on the campus.
Nilagiri police station inspector in-charge Gopal Krushna Karna said they are willing to release the goats, but only if their owner can be found. They have appealed to the public to come forward if they know who the goats belong to.
“It is difficult to find the owner without knowing where the goats were stolen from,” Karna said, adding, “Since the thieves came from Mayurbhanj, the goats may have been stolen from a village there.”
