For those who don’t know what the term BESTIALITY means, here’s the Wikipedia definition of the term.
“Bestiality is the cross-
And it is a punishable offense under Section 377 of IPC.
A Delhi boy aged 18 had been brought to AIIMS by his parents to treat him for this unnatural behavior.
The teen involved in sexual activity with calves comes from the dairy farm area in Najafgarh, located on the outskirts of South West Delhi. It is the second case of bestiality in two years. In the first case, the boy was accused of using two calves as a medium to satisfy his sexual desire. During this brutal act, one calf died. Human DNA was detected from calves’ anal and vaginal swabs in a forensic science laboratory that confirmed the allegation. However, the patient felt no guilt or remorse. The doctors tried to treat him, but he ran away and never came back. This case has been published in the recent issue section of the Indian Journal of Community Medicine.
Although the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) has handled many rare cases, these instances come as a shock even to the doctors. Many such cases go unreported due to the fear of society.
The Department of Psychiatry and Forensic Medicine of the hospital is treating the boy in the recent case.
Why did he do it?
“As reported by the patient, significant life events during his childhood and adolescence included witnessing domestic violence (father and brother beating their wives), the death of his mother when he was 13 years old, and him taking to alcohol at the age of 16 years. He was also sodomized multiple times at the age of 10-11 years,” Dr. Sujata Satapathy, who is handling such cases at the Department of Psychiatry at AIIMS, said.
When the doctors ran a background check on him, they found out that he often visited internet cafes and was exposed to explicit content like bestiality on pornographic sites at an early age.
The violent behavior of his parents at home repeated sexual abuse in a prepubertal stage. Then the exposure to the contents on porn sites turned him into a zoophile and affected his social-sexual-psyche and personality development. He could not find the right way to channel his anger and used the animals as his displacement defense mechanism.
Doctors claim that the person involved in bestiality during his childhood is more likely to do even more heinous crime as an adult. This should not be taken lightly at all but as a warning sign for society. One can cure it with proper treatment at the right time.
Prevention is Better Than Cure
Bestial behavior does not arise overnight. There are various driving forces behind it. The upbringing, the environment a child grows in being on the top. If he sees that the people around him are using sex as a way of releasing their frustration, it will be permanently engraved in his mind—the emotional damage caused by any hurtful experience in childhood fuels the disorder.
Proper counseling should be provided to the child and the family because No One Is Born A Rapist.
