The UP police department, targeted for failing to control crime graph in the northern state, has now given us enough evidence as of why its actions are in the line of fire often. "For two days, I could not find my horses and donkeys".

Donkeys being jailed was an exemplary case of enforcing this principle in Uttar Pradesh.

When he approached jail bosses about his detained donkeys, they refused to let them go.

When Kamlesh found out his donkeys were being held in prison, he pleaded for their release - but was denied.

He said: 'There is no such law wherein we can arrest donkeys.

"We request you to check your facts with us next time", stated the UP police's tweet.

A herd of donkeys in Uttar Pradesh's Jalaun district were recently put behind bars for allegedly committing the "crime" of feasting on expensive plants outside Ural jail here.

"These donkeys had destroyed some very expensive plants which our senior officer had arranged for planting inside the jail and despite warnings, the owner let loose his animals here so we detained the donkeys", head constable RK Mishra told news agency ANI.

They had reportedly munched their way through 500,000 Indian ruppees (around £5,800) worth of plants left outside. "We called the owners several times, and each time, they said the animals didn't belong to them". Donkeys were chained at an old house of the jailer within the jail premises.

It was only after he enlisted the help of local politician Shakti Gahoi, who came to the jail to speak on his behalf, that the donkeys were released.
