Distraught Varanasi Man Puts Up 'Missing' Posters For Beloved Bull Who Had 'Access To His Bedroom'


Upset over the disappearance of his bull, a man from Sarnath in Varanasi is trying hard to get his beloved pet back. Manoj Pandey, owner of the missing bull Badshah, has announced a reward of Rs 50,000 for anyone with credible information about the animal.

Posters carrying a photograph of the 3-year-old bull and other details of its physical appearance have appeared in several localities.

Pandey who has also filed a complaint with the Sarnath police station, told ANI, "It feels like I've lost my child. Badshah has been with us since his birth. Don't have words to express my pain."

Badshah is not merely an animal for us, but like a family member, having access to our kitchen and bedroom.

"Badshah is not merely an animal for us, but like a family member having access to our kitchen and bedroom. Only objective behind announcing the reward is that the amount will attract those who have taken away the bull with them for selling purpose," Times of India quoted him as saying.

Rajkumar Yadav, Circle officer of Sarnath, said a missing report has been filed and the police have taken up the matter "with sensitivity".

"A search is on," he said.
