A man in Karnataka's Belagavi district was arrested after his wife complained to the police that he had forced her to have sex with a dog.

According to a report in Deccan Herald, the man, a truck driver by profession, showed his wife a series of pornographic videos on his mobile phone involving bestiality and asked her to imitate the actions in real life.

The couple, who have been married for over seven years, have three children.

According to a report in Bangalore Mirror, the wife told the police that her husband had been abusing her physically and mentally for the last couple of years. This pattern reached a sick peak on 22 March when the husband brought a dog home and allegedly forced her to have intercourse with it.

The 25-year-old woman alleged that she initially went along with the act because her husband was torturing her, but refused when she could not bear it anymore.

The husband then allegedly threw her and their three children out of the house.

The police have arrested the 28-year-old husband and charged him under section 498 (A) (Husband or relative of husband of a woman subjecting her to cruelty), 504 (Intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace), 506 (Criminal Intimidation) and 377 (unnatural offences) of the Indian Penal Code.
